Weekly Photo Challenge: One – Flame Lily Living Dangerously


“I’ll give you One, oh
Green Grow the Rushes, Oh,
What is your One, oh?
One is One and all alone,
And ever more shall be so.”

Traditional English song often associated with Christmas

 

This solitary Gloriosa Superba (Flame Lily) is growing in the middle of our path through the forest to the beach.  It is a long way from Zimbabwe, where it is the national flower.

  3. The flame lily is gorgeous – and such shiny flat leaves contrasted to all the narrow greenery behind – nicely done.

  4. gorgeous flower – we had those in our “garden” in Seychelles. Said garden was a bit of jungle with a house in the middle and the Indian Ocean at the bottom. We didn’t call them flame lilies, but I can’t remember the local name.
