Monday, Covent Garden

Shiemi yawned as she moved through the shop today. She really needed to stop staying up so late; the research paper she was doing for her herbology course back home didn't have to be done while the moonflowers were actually were blooming.


Luckily the plants at the shop were being super nice and there wasn't a big holiday coming up. Ah, the phone...

"Covent Garden florists, may I help you?"

...

"No sir. Uhm usually they don't get sold as flowers; they're more a decorative plant."

...

"Yes sir. I understand Google says they are -"

...

"Yes, but sir. A hens-and-chicks blooms only when it dies, so it's not something you can really give to someone as a bouquet. Perhaps if I knew the occasion, I could suggest something?"

...

"... Ah. Uuuhm. I'm... afraid I don't really know what flower is traditional for National Chicken Wing Day. If I can have your name and number, I will definitely have the owner assist you with this. "






[up late but up! Can be open!]
