 This is a homage to the Flame Lily.  It’s scientific name is Gloriosa which means full of glory, alluding to the striking red and yellow flowers.  This climbing herb has glossy leaves and twinning tips which coil into nearby bushes which gives the plants support.

“Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.”

Maya Angelou (1928-2014)
