Last week, on Christmas Eve, Brendan and I went to the Mercado Medellin to buy food and flowers.
After I asked which flowers smelled the best, one of the florists talked me into buying two stalks of giant lilies. Nearly a week later, they are still opening, not showing any signs of wilting. The house has smelled like fresh flowers this whole time.
Price? 40 pesos, or about $3.
