Flower Power

I am no gardener, but am surrounded by people who are. These caught my eye on one of my early morning walks. Have no idea what they are but loved their colour and shape.

When I stopped to take these photos, I was dived-bombed by a couple of birds. As with most victims of senseless crime, I didn't get a good look a them. I found that the rather sharp sound of a snapping beak close to one's ear is enough to keep one moving along and not asking too many questions.

I think they're proteas, Maggie (though I'm also no gardener). And I'd say you were attacked by Magpies - sounds like their modus operandi and it is the season for it...
