Festival of lilies

Today I was inspired to cut offerings of tiger lilies to make to all the gods.  The lilies predate our ownership, but until a neighbor cleared his property they did not have the light to bloom.  This year the showing is quite spectacular, and I found myself moved to offer them at all of the household altars.

I know that lilies have ties to Persephone, and summer celebrations to Dionysos, and one could see Apollon in the bright and cheerful orange blooms.  I also know to offer flowers to Hestia.  So I hope to craft an annual event out of this offering of lilies.  Just don’t know what to call it.
