Stigma, style, and stamens

Lily!

Well I mean you’ve GOT to have Easter lilies on Easter, even in New Providence, even if they’re out of season (which lilies are, this time of year).

Apparently the term “pistil” is growing out of favor, so you can’t call ’em “pistils and stamens” anymore. The central thingie is a bulbous “stigma” on the end of a long slender “style.”
