For Birthday Cards

I have to make two birthday cards today so have chosen photos to make traditional matted cards.
The rose photo was taken in the garden a while ago and the Protea is a copy of a photo taken in 1997 in Cape Town. I bought a large bunch of protea from a flower seller on Table Mountain.
We were visiting John's twin brother who lived there for many years, sadly he died last year.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen Protea before. Does it grow in your garden?

It is a Wow! plant - photo was taken in South Africa - the only ones growing here in UK are at Kew Gardens I think! Connie.

Beautiful rose as well - I bet that one smells like a proper rose, too!
