Starting our 2014 Amazing Race with my favourite flower, the Flame Lily. When I was a child I would walk in the bush and pick arm fulls of this ‘Gloriosa Superba’ (botanical name), and fill the house with them.
Christmas and New Year has always been such a special time for our family and when the rains are right, the first flame lilies (national flower of Zimbabwe) appear just in time for Christmas. This year they were a little late but on New Year’s day Rodney and I found these in the bush. May the fire of God flame in our lives at the beginning of this year so full of promise and opportunity!
