This incredibly beautiful plant is native to southern parts of Africa, and has come to symbolise Easter.
Being Canadian, I see them as terribly exotic, and am familiar with only seeing them in prohibitively expensive arrangements or in a greenhouse. On a visit to California, the sight of them growing in profusion along fences and in the ditch, was like a revelation! This bouquet was in the vestibule of an ancient Catholic church in France.
This Easter, may they bring us all a Revelation; one of Peace and freedom for all.
