The wreath that she had made with Mercury was something that she cherished. It was so beautiful in the first few days, and she loved looking at. But as time went on, and the flowers began wilting, it made her sad. So, to make herself feel better, she thought she would return to the greenhouse. Steal another opportunity to interact and play with the flowers growing inside the space untouched by the cooler seasons. Once inside, she skipped down the aisle toward the raised bed in the back to see some of the herbs that she missed on her last visit.

What she found were multiple flowering plants. One with what looked like yellow pom poms, one that had huge clusters of tiny white blooms. And some that had clusters of pale pink blooms but had slightly larger flower heads than the white ones. They were all so pretty! She immediately started taking a few to use in another project but made a conscious effort to not take too many. As she combed through her selection, she softly hummed to herself. Taking time to admire each and everyone she picked. Talyssa was very confident that no matter what she ended up making this time around, it was going to be even better than the last!

Bramble could be seen wandering around that day. She knew there was something she ought to be doing, but decided to explore the castle grounds anyway. There was something about the mystery of the greenhouse that had been bugging her lately. What in the world could be in there? From a distance, she could see leaves pressed up against the windows that were foggy and dripping with condensation. Ignoring the little bit of chill in the air, the young pup made her way to the large greenhouse.

Slipping inside, her teal eyes wide with curiosity, she let out a quiet gasp. It was so lovely here! The smell was fragrant and lovely. There were so many different types of flowers to look at and smell! She couldn't believe that even though it was cold outside, these plants could thrive there! Amazed by the feat of growing plants here, she wandered toward the back where a familiar scent caught her interest. "Lyss?" Bramble called out as her head lilted to the side. Approaching her sister, she smiled as her tail wagged excitedly. Trying not to knock over any of the plants, she peered at what her sister was gathering. "What are you going to do with those?" She asked as she scooted closer to get a better look.

Once she felt that she had collected enough flowers- with plenty of extra, she went on to the next step. The fawn and white girl went back to the ivies and climbing vines that Mercury pointed out to her the time before, and she began culling some of the dying segments- but were still flexible enough to bend and braid. Again, since she wasn't quite sure of what she was making, she took what she assumed to be more than enough and gleefully returned back to the flowers that she had set aside on the raised flowerbed.

However, she wasn't really given the opportunity to start assembling her project, as she was interrupted by a familiar voice. "Oh, hey Bramble!" She greeted her sister in surprise. "I didn't hear you come in." But to be fair, she wasn't really paying that great of attention to her surroundings either. So engulfed in the wreath recreations to take notice.

When Bramble asked exactly what the plan was, Talyssa stalled. She wanted to make something different than what she and Merc had made. If it were just a little bit smaller, they could be worn as a necklace ... but it would be kinda bulky for that. Maybe it could be worn as a crown though? Yeah! "I'm gonna make a flower crown!" She declared, her attention resettling on all the parts that she had collected for this venture. Though as she got started weaving the vines into a small circlet, she paused to look at her sister once more. "I think I got a lot of extra supplies. Do you wanna make one with me?" She asked softly. Maybe if they still had leftovers, they could make one for Dusk. But she'd probably tear her's up.

Her tail wagged happily behind her when her sister acknowledged her presence. Showing her a smile, Bramble glanced at the myriad of flowers and vines that were laid out on the nearby table. Watching the assessment that happened in Talyssa on what was going to be made of the flowers, Bramble waited almost impatiently. There was a lot of energy built up in her and as long as she could shift from side to side on her paws, she would be content to wait.

When Lyss exclaimed she would be making flower crowns and if she wanted to help, Bramble couldn't resist nodding excitedly. "That sounds fun!!" She chirped as her tail stirred up dust behind her. "Can you show me how? I've never done it before," she asks almost in a shy manner as her teal eyes shift from the flowers to her sister.

When Bramble reinforced that the flower crowns were a good idea, Talyssa beamed with appreciation.  "Of course!" While Talyssa had never really made a flower crown specifically, she knew that it would be very similar to the wreath she made with Mercury, just on a smaller scale. She was confident in her ability to recall the step-by-step process to her sister. So, she would begin.

"First we gotta make the frame with the vines." Talyssa started. She grabbed a few segments and started twisting them together. She was careful not to make it too tight to where she couldn't tuck the flowers in later- but also not too loose so it would hold together well enough. "I like to braid them together, like Momma does to her tail." she added, demonstrating the pattern as she intertwined the scraps of vines together. Once they were firmly in place, she joined the ends to where they would hold. Once satisfied, she left a paw on top to hold the ends together, while she reached for some of the twine that had been left out from previous projects.  "We can reinforce the ends with a little bit of string." Talyssa instructed as she used her remaining paw and teeth to tie off a knot to keep everything together. Satisfied with its hold, she withdrew her paw and picked out some of the flowers to use.  "Then, it's just a matter of tucking the flowers into place." The Carpathius girl finished, as she demonstrated tucking some of the blooms into place with one of her nails.

After she had gotten a good start on her crown, she shifted her attention back to her sister.  "Now you try!" Lyssie insisted enthusiastically.
