Completely natural ones this time without the necessity of playing around with color, light, or even cropping.
I had never seen these flowers until we moved back to Northern California. They seem not to grow in the southern part of the sate. The first time I saw them, my reaction was, “What is the world are those???????” Over the next few months I saw them many times in arrangements, and quite a variety of pincushion flowers blooming quite hardily around Oakland. Also, to my surprise, when I came close to them I realized they aren’t sharp or prickly at all. In fact they are rather soft. But they do make quite a display.
