Exotic Flowers and breaking the law...

Catchy title, huh?  It will all make sense in a minute... : )

Just had to share some more of God's AMAZING creation.  I was really ready to have a bouquet of hydrangeas for spring in the house, but while my husband and I were on a date last weekend (LOVE date nights!), we saw this beauty and I've been in awe of it ever since....

It is a protea and it is from South Africa.  It is huge and although it doesn't exactly smell like roses, I'm still in love with it. 
Isn't it huge??
Although, I probably can't get a hold of this one whenever I want, it's still going on the favorites list.

Addison and I went on a walk {just the two of us!} last weekend and we checked out the bluebonnets down the street from us.  The first year we lived in Texas, I had the kids pick handfuls of bluebonnets for wasn't till we got home, that my sweet husband kindly told me that it was illegal since it is the state flower.  I felt bad....but they were SO pretty in a vase in my kitchen! ; )

So now I just take lots of pictures in them instead of bringing them home. :) 

I am kinda new to this world of flowers and I am enjoying learning about what the different kinds are (even though my thumb is still as black as it gets..ha!) What are your favorite flowers?  I'd love to hear...maybe I can put in a request for them in the coming long as they aren't bluebonnets. : )
