Pollen Packages

The pollen beating anthers of lilies are often cut off the flowers when they are brought into a house.  They can stain clothing or furnture if one is not careful.  To me this is the most beautiful part of the lily so I never cut them offf.

Amazing details!
Mary MacADNski: It is there for us to see if we look.
excellent details. fit to accompany a study in botany
Mary MacADNski: If only we could transmit the odours.
We have to cut them off as our Helen is asthmatic and wheezes within range of them!
Mary MacADNski: Very common. I'm lucky not to have to.
I've never heard of those bits being cut off Mary, it is a lovely plant.
Mary MacADNski: It is a usual practice. Though lilies are common you rarely see pollen on them. Ruins ans stains the arrangement. You will see staining tomorrow. Alma is visiting an dhelping me type.
Those are fantastic! However, they do make a mess if you aren't careful, don't they?
Mary MacADNski: Yes, tomorrow's shot shows that.
What brilliant reds...
Mary MacADNski: The colour of our soil.
So pretyy here... and I'm so allergic to them.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, I know quite a few people who are. I feel so sorry for you.
