This sight of calla lilies blooming in an English front garden, startled me today. In Finland, or at least for me, they are first and foremost a funeral flower. I would never have them in a vase at home, or plant them in my garden. Beautiful as they are, they would only make me all sad and mournful. It’s interesting to compare the differences in cultural symbols and connotations.
