Pretty sweet and proud Protea
Protea is the perfect bipolar flower with her prickly cubistic shape contrasting her sugar sweet taste and lovely vulnerable colour palette. Her hairy pointy bracts protect her sweet heart as a soft shield. She lives happily in her perfect pink bubble, protected from insects and the evil outside world_______.
Please make place for bright rebellion blending and a summer of love… We are all striving for visual floral optimism in a fight-or-flight era these days. We pursue aesthetic idyll by controlling our minds, bodies and nature with liberal ideas reacting on a world in chaos. And we’re all dreaming of a magical perfect world; an idyllic flower garden over the horizon, almost forgetting to enjoy the flowers that are blooming outside our windows today.
