I heard a few parishioner comments in favor of multiple angiosperm species being used for interior decoration this Easter season. Not just lilies. Art & Environment isn’t under my purview at my parish, but I like this notion all the same.
I remember asking an AE team that I did supervise why they insisted on using lilies, and nothing but. It seemed like a lot of work for plants that were leaves and shriveled flowers on the floor by Good Shepherd Sunday. Plus, pinching off those pollen stems. When asked for my idea I said anything that maintained the look and feel of Easter Sunday all the way to Pentecost. They looked at me like I was from Mars.
