Wow Duke your bird photos are fantastic BUT your proteas are even better.

I have been trying to grow a protea but it keeps dying on me. :-( :-( :-(

Hi stf 0/*

We planted six species of proteas and four ericas in the garden but two proteas died and the four are growing very well. I am exceptionally happy about the king protea flowering earlier this year O/\

Plants

Three of the ericas died but the one seems very happy in his spot.
