One day a lovely lady called Aphroditi (How could someone called Aphroditi be anything but lovely?) brought a bunch of flowers into work. Centre piece to the flowers was a large Arum lily. We joked about whether someone had died and got nothing but blank looks. Aphroditi's background was Egyptian and she knew nothing of the Lily-Death association. I set out to find out a bit more about it.
