    What do lillies remind you of? They make me think of purity, chastity, virginity, innocence, and I'm not gonna lie, vaginas:blush:

    Do you have a favorite flower? What does it make you think of? :)

    Saint Maria Gorretti appeared to her killer after death and offered him a Lilly. It converted him and he wrote letters to the Pope to get her canonized.

    These are better representations in flower form IMO.

    I'm not a fan of lilies because they are toxic to Pets, and my animals like to eat plants.

    My favorite flower at the moment, is the Magnolia. They smell wonderful.

    I also really like roses.

    I like duck orchids, they grow wild around here and it's always a thrill to find one flowering.

    I wasn't saying lillies look like vaginas, but they have a tendency to make me think about them when I see them. :p

    Are they edible?
    Some flowers are edible and people make salads with them.

    Apparently so...

    Edibility

    All plants in the Lilium genus are edible, and all parts of the plant can be eaten. The young shoots, the leaves, and the flowers. But what is most nourishing is the bulb of this beautiful plant. Some lily species have been harvested for their bulbs for thousands of years. Native Americans revered their native lilies for their culinary and medicinal uses, and would ensure the success of these species by performing prescribed burns in areas in which they grew. Wild species in North America that were favored for their edible qualities are L. paradalinum, L. columbianum, and L. canadense. The tiger lily, L. lancifolium, originally from Asia and used for thousands of years in cuisine, is now naturalized to many parts of North America and is popular among gardeners wishing to experiment with this other side of lilies.
