When I see Proteas, I am reminded of South Africa. A reminder that is bitter-sweet as I am far from those who mean a great deal to me.
The Protea flower is a South African national symbol. So I was delighted to discover that a painting entered to the Redcliffe Art Society Members Exhibition had received First Prize in the Flora and Fauna section.
