The following is from an essay:

Lilies, I believe were her greatest love. Except for some Madonna lilies it is impossible to name them, since the wooden flats stood casually here and there in the flower bed, all thickly planted with dark green lily seedlings.

The word "since" indicates there is a relationship of cause and effect between the impossibility to name them and "the wooden flats stood casually here and there in the flower bed, all thickly planted with dark green lily seedlings". But how can that influence the author's ablility to know the name of the lilies?

@dreambliss,
He didn't recognize the different varieties, and they weren't labeled. Not everyone is an expert on lilies.

@dreambliss,
Unlabelled seedlings would be hard to tell apart unless someone is a botanist specializing in lilies.

A lot of people can only identify flowers once they can see the blossom.
