What does a lily say?

The Elegant and Peaceful Lily

In Roman legends, Venus was filled with envy when she first witnessed the beautiful lily. She felt so threatened by the way it rivaled her beauty that she caused a monstrous pistil to rise from its perfect, white center. Some folklore claim that lilies spontaneously sprouted up on the graves of people executed for crimes they were innocent of.

And, some people even believe that having lilies in a garden will protect it from evil spirits and ghosts that might otherwise intrude upon it. Regardless of implications placed upon this flower, there's no denying its beauty and elegance. It has a certain appearance of purity that make it the perfect wedding flower. In addition, it emits such a peacefulness that it is commonly used as a funeral flower.
