Protea: Fall’s Final Flush
It takes just a peek out in the fields to remind us that fall has, indeed, made its way to this side of the equator. I always find that the sky is prettiest in the autumn, it seems to take on a warm golden glow that reminds me of the word ‘harvest’. That awareness as nature yields its final flush and soon the fields will begin anew - is the mood of our latest field trip. There’s something so calming about a pickup full of protea standing tall, blooms to the sky. I thought it would be the perfect way to share the feeling of the season. Each gorgeous protea transforms everyday life here on the farm — such harvesting, hydrating and even transporting—into works of art.
