Day 95 - Giant Protea

A while back we had a sketchcrawl at the Old Cactus Garden in Balboa Park. It is behind the Puppet Theater and the Balboa Park Club. There is a huge Protea bush (tree?) there that had a number of flowers on it. I took this picture of one of the flowers. It was at least 7 or 8 inches tall - just amazing in size! All the little spiny parts are so perfectly arranged. They aren't sharp "spines" but I'm not sure what to call them!
Photo, specialty papers, embellishments.
