Really beautiful! Brilliant perspective on them.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Makes me want to return to Australia (and to NSW). A beautiful banner, congrats. I tip my hat to you. Are these pretty daisies particularly long lasting?

thanks everyone Smiling I'll be back here later in my day to message further. For now, I've edited up top to include the original photograph of the Everlastings, and also a link to a variety of Everlasting.

@cliftoncat Mika you had asked how long do the flowers last and from the website up top; it suggests four to ten weeks.

Till later Smiling

@carolem .....those are bee-utiful!! Thumbs up
Thanks for showing the whole image, too.

BTW, I checked the plant DB, and didn't find a vendor. Then I did a Google search, and found one in Australia, but they required >= $200 order to ship internationally. Blinking

Next I checked Amazon, and found this deal from Florida https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0711WFWYV/

I ordered and should get them (~50 seeds per bottle) by March 20~22. Smiling

@plantmanager Karen; @flaflwrgrl Ann; @cliftoncat Mika; @TBGDN Leon; @joannakat Joanna; @Marilyn, Marilyn; @EscondidoCal Cal a big thank you each for your messages here today; all greatfully received Smiling

@EscondidoCal Cal; gosh that was steep $AUD200 for shipping some seeds! Know it would've been out of the question, so I was really pleased you found a happy resolve locally, through Amazon. Look forward to progress reports on how you go with them.

BTW the photographed Everlastings were growing wild; in many places in that location. So you can bet on their return, year after year.
