It had just rained in Filabusi when we went there to do a borehole survey. Driving along I saw this red flower right near the road. I couldn’t resist stopping.
I’m told the bulbs of this plant can be used to cure gangrene?

They are pretty amazing how they pop up. We always used to see them on the farm at Lake Mac, specially after a bush fire had gone. They broke through, almost as a symbol of things going to come green again. I also saw them last year in Kruger park, where a fire had gone through a few weeks before. The blackened earth with a vibrant red catching ones eye.
I don’t think this area had been burned, but it had certainly rained …Ive always loved these plants- we always knew where they grew on the farm and it was a delight to see them at the beginning of the rains
