Many other plants and flowers grow on the farm as well and I couldn't even keep up with the various names. :) Quite a few Protea were represented. The genus Protea was named in 1735 by Carl Linnaeus after the Greek god Proteus who could change his form at will, because proteas contain such a wide variety.
Ugh, I am so annoyed with blogger. I can't get it to take out all these big spaces. I don't know how many times I have gone back in and deleted space after space, saved the post and republished, to no avail. Bear with me. :)
