Line 1: Line 1:
'''Lilies''' were large flowers that grow on slender stalks, that in [[Middle-earth]] were found at least in the [[Gondorians|Gondorian]] lands of [[Lebennin]] and [[Ithilien]]. In the modern world, lilies can grow in a variety of colours and patterns, but in [[Tolkien]]'s world they're always referred to as being white: for example in the description of [[Éowyn]] in her illness as 'white as a lily' ([[The Lord of the Rings]] V 8, [[The Houses of Healing]]). Among [[Gandalf]]'s amazing array of fireworks was one in the shape of a lily, which could famously hang in the air throughout an entire evening.
