Some Gorgeous Red Flowers

“I am in awe of flowers. Not because of their colors, but because even though they have dirt in their roots, they still grow. They still bloom.” – D. Antoinette Foy

My daughter was gone for three weeks on a business trip to NYC. She came back last Thursday … So last Saturday, my husband and I went to her place for a catch up. Saw these fresh cut flowers on her dining table and noticed how gorgeous the blooms were. This is an Australian native flower known as the Waratah. It is an ideal cut flower because it lasts long, but it does not have much of a scent.

It is perfect for Sunshine’s Macro Monday – Waratah Flowers and for Cee’s FOTD Challenge – Red Waratah Natives

    Love the way you presented them as pulling back from a zoom close-up. 🙂

    These were the flowers i was talking about that looked like my yellow leucospermum a while back! 🙂
