"bowl of beauty"--a perfect name for this flower. i haven't seen a King Protea before, it's quite interesting, too.

Beautiful photos. Rhododendrons look a lot like azaleas.

Thank you for sharing these beautiful flowers from the San Francisco Botanical Garden. I have been to San Francisco but never thought to go to the garden at the time. It was kind of a flying visit but it's on my bucket list now thanks to you :) Have a great week!
