Subhash Sharma   "Lilies have had a role in ancient mythology as far back as the 1500s B.C. Images have been discovered throughout ancient Greece and throughout Asia. The Greeks believed that the lily flower sprouted from the milk of the goddess Hera and represented both chastity and virtue. They are a symbol throughout Christian mythology of the Virgin Mary's purity and denote humility and the innocence restored after death. Most varieties of lilies are toxic to cats and some pet animal. Organizations such as the Animal Poison Control Centre have led numerous campaigns to inform owners of the dangers of the flower to their pets. Consequences of feline ingestion can range from vomiting, lethargy, and even death."

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs.
