The night before my sisters arrived, Boyfriend and I went food shopping to buy all the things they like. Boyfriend picked up some orange lily buds that hadn't yet opened. The buds bloomed throughout the week when my girls were here. Yesterday, on the last day of the visit, they were decrepit. I will have to throw them out today.
In addition, it was sunny while they visited (yes!) but today, the rains came. It's dark and grey.
Oh, the symbolism.
