These tiny “wax” flowers were part of a gift from my husband. He knows that I love to have fresh flowers in the home and made the effort today to make sure that I had some to replace carnations and gypsophila that we had bought some three weeks ago.
I love the delicate pink petals and the glossy, waxy surface in the ‘saucer’ of the flower. Quite amazing. And thanks to some macrophotography, you can see the detail too.
I did a little investigation and the Latin name for these is Chamelaucium uncinatum.
