Lily was a gift to JennTheGamerMom, from her daughter Lizzy, for Mothers' Day 2013. She was lovely, not yet flowering, but green and frond-y and tall.
And then Jenn took Lily to work, and she did well for a few days, then began to fade. Jenn's boss knows flowers, and told Jenn that Lily needed less water, and more direct sunlight. Jenn arranged this on a fire escape at work, and for a few more days, Lily perked up.
And then faded again, drooping and sad in the summer heat, pale green fronds now yellowy-brown. Jenn's boss said that Lily needed more space to grow, and bone meal to eat, and so Jenn took Lily to Grandma's house, where Lizzy and Grandma and Abby planted Lily in a nice fresh flower bed.
But now the Poem Poster that Abby had crafted and given to JennTheGamerMom on that Mothers' Day of 2013... Poem Poster was lonely at Jenn's desk. And so Lizzy made a bouquet of paper flowers to sit near Poem Poster.

Thus (perhaps) ends the tale of Lily the lily... until the next chapter.
