things wendi taught me

i've never been a big fan of lilies. i think they smell horrendous, but they ARE gorgeous. so, occasionally, i suffer through the stink to have them in my apartment.
as luck would have it, we also often get lilies in our weekly arrangement from the shop that delivers to us at the office, thus allowing wendi to teach me another tidbit.

as it turns out, if you pull the 'pollens' off their stems from the open lilies it sends a plant message to the other flowers that it's time to open....thus, a more gorgeous, and less stinky arrangement.
