Photo: Hope under dire circumstances.Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner 
A bit of a cheat, because this is not a photo of a flower, but of information about bulbous plants. It was a privilege to grow up surrounded by so much beauty.Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara PruessnerPhoto: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner 
The Waratah protea is the national flower of New South Wales, Australia. I have never been to Australia - this photo was taken in Kirstenbosch, Cape Town.
The first time I heard of the Waratah was when I saw the Waratah rugby team playing. Sometimes even through rugby you can learn something new )))Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner

Well I like garden flowers as well. I know the Afrikaans names for all these flowers, but not the English ones :(Photo: The sun will shine again.Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara PruessnerPhoto: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner 
I took this photo in Xian, China. At a quick glance it looks like a very beautiful garden, but then you see the flowers are standing in pots. Sort of looks like the real thing, but not. The same way that you can buy Nookia or Sony Eriksoon phones. Yes copying is a problem over there.
But on the other hand I was very impressed by China and its people. Would go back there again any day.Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner 
All flowers are beautiful, none more so than wildflowers. There is this region in SA called Namaqaland. During late winter this dry land turns into a wildflower paradise. If you ever have a chance and spare money lying around, go and see a natural miracle.Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner 
Another wildflower from that same area.Photo: #floralfriday by +Tamara Pruessner,
