I didn’t want to go with faded flowers, so I settled for a fading wallflower instead.
I was surprised to learn there actually is a wallflower that is known for its very showy flowers. It is an herb from the mustard family. One of my childhood nicknames, courtesy of my cousin Jane, was Mustard Head. Perhaps that explains my social awkwardness at junior high dances.
