“Can I take one home, Mom?”

“What?”

Penny had been lost in her thoughts. Going through a divorce was draining all her energy. She had been hoping spending some time out here with her daughter would help.

“The flower,” Lily said, pointing. “It’s pretty. Can I have one?”

Penny shook her head. “No, honey. That flower belongs here. How about we plant a new one when we get home?”

Lily frowned but then nodded. “Okay. But only if Daddy helps us plant it.”

Penny sighed. “We’ll see if daddy wants to help.”

Well, at least she could enjoy the flowers.
