a local pincushion

Last week all the ladies at work received a branch with one or more flower on it, all belonging to the Proteaceae family (the flowers, not the ladies!).  Mine, in particular, are from the Leucospermum genus.  Lisa, over at Notes from Africa, kindly helped me to identify the family and genus.
