"O Tiger-lily!" said Alice..."I wish you could talk!" "We can talk," said the Tiger-lily, "when there's anybody worth talking to."

Talking flowers have long stimulated the imagination, in stories from Tennyson through Carroll - if we were able to hear flowers, what would these voices of mother nature tell us? Whisper answers this question by having a garden of freshly cut calla lilly flowers whisper into your ear. Each flower in the grove whispers erotic sexual phrases one would hear while being intimate with a loved one. These phrases were written and chosen because the natural function of a flower is attraction, attraction towards bees inorder to spread it's genetic code. The intimacy is accentuated by the close proximity the listener must come to the flowers to hear the whisper.
