I may have insight on the whole flowering/fire association. The flowers are shown alive because they are still in use of their own metabolic pathways. I.E. Photosynthesis and Metabolic catabolism. All living things have small controlled fires burning in their mitochondria. This is where energy for life comes from. Plants are able to make their own "fires" using the suns energy to produce sugar to fuel those fires. My take on it. I had trouble understanding the fire relationship until Flavio mention the flower as a conduit to collect energy. And flowers do just that. Green leaves work better though. I would rather have a living wand that a dead stick with a rock on the end, even though Robin Woods wands are much prettier.
