    It's about age of innocence.

    What do Newland's choice of flowers reveal about the women he sends them to?

    So I know he sends May lilies of the valley and sends Ellen yellow roses.

    I know lilies of the valley are posionous and the Christian legend that the Lily of the Valley formed from the tears of Mary as she wept at the crucifixion of Jesus.

    I know yellow roses shows warmth and happiness.

    However how do the choices of the flowers reveal about the women?
