First Ever Blood Lily Bloom ... The Year In Photographs ... November 11, 2013
It seems rather appropriate that my one and only Scadoxus multiflorus or Blood Lily, given to me as a pass-along plant earlier this year, should show off its first ever fully open bloom on Remembrance Day.
The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month has special significance around the world, including here in Australia. We observe one minute's silence at 11.00 am every Remembrance Day, to remember all those in the armed services who have died or suffered whilst serving for their country.
This spectacular fiery red flowerhead is a fitting reminder about the sacrifices made by so many in the past.
Lest we forget!
