Haikai challenge: Easter lily

For Frank Tassone’s haikai prompt Easter lily which has a special symbolic significance if you’re Irish. Like all symbols, it has its detractors, but they grow in all the gardens in Bordeaux and I like them. We left ours behind when we moved because one of our cats is buried under them.
