It's an atypical example of the trope in that while the trope typically focuses on hope and new growth, Lily's Proposal signals the end, that people should accept their inevitable doom and spend the time they have left in peace.

* In the ''{{Mistborn}}'' trilogy, Kelsier's DeadToBeginWith wife Mare had had this intention in the face of a history of a thousand years in a CrapsackWorld. She had a picture of a flower (no one alive had ever seen one) that she carried to her death and bequeathed to Kelsier. The picture later passes on to Vin, who gives it to Sazed when he's facing a religious crisis. And in the end, [[spoiler: Sazed [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence becomes a God]], and uses the picture, among other information, to recreate the world as it once was. The surviving characters awaken to find themselves in a field of flowers.]]

* A somewhat strange example: in The movie ''Film/JoesApartment'', Lily is working to make a garden in a depressed neighborhood to make it a better place. The villains of the story make sure that the garden is destroyed. Joe likes Lily and wishes her to be happy and with the help of his cockroach friends and all of the rats, pigeons, etc. that the roaches can muster, Lily's garden is rebuilt.

to:

* A negative version of this appears in ''Film/BlackNarcissus''. Sister Philippa plants the convent's vegetable garden with flowers instead - and it's a sign that the exotic environment has caused the nuns to lose their sanity slightly. The flowers also mean that there will be hardly any food for the next year.




to:

* In ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' when [[spoiler: Aslan is resurrected]], he celebrates by leaping around the area. Wherever he lands, flowers spring up. It's the first sign of Jadis's reign officially coming to an end in Narnia.
* This is of course the objective of Mary Lennox in ''Literature/TheSecretGarden''. She finds her aunt's old garden, neglected and dead-looking after ten years, and sets about trying to restore it. [[spoiler: The sight of the garden restored to its former beauty, and his son walking again, is what brings her uncle out of his HeroicBSOD]].




to:

* ''{{Series/Charmed}}'':
** An episode featured a demon drinking from the Eternal Spring to become immortal - and therefore unkillable. So the sisters instead turn him into a tree in the Enchanted Forest.
** Overall this is the raison d'etre of the wood nymphs. Wherever they go, flowers sprout.
** Parodied in a flashback episode that reveals the sisters' BadassGrandma was actually GranolaGirl in the 60s. Her first vanquishing spell asks to make the demon's remains "good for the environment" - and he explodes into flower petals.


Creator/HenrikWergeland had flower motifs all over. One of his most visual examples come in the one-act farce ''Do not lie'', telling the story of two hecklers, and how the poet is handling them. His solution is to send in a flower-fairy, dumping ''an entire flower garden'' in their heads, with specific instruction on how the different flowers will work their magic on them.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': In ''Bones, Son of Cyrano'', Mr. Boynton advises Miss Brooks to order some flowers from the school nursery to brighten up her classroom. She accordingly writes a letter to Mr. Conklin. Unfortunately, the dimwitted Bones Snodgrass mixes-up his deliveries, and gives Mr. Conklin a love letter, claiming it's from Miss Brooks.
