    Appearance: Daffy is a bit of a wisp in many regards. Her frame long and lanky, her limbs a little gangly and uncoordinated; she boasts no curves despite having started to “blossom” into a woman (as her mother would say). She's reached her full height at a rather impressive 5'4". Her hair is a medium brown and often falling out of its updo and decorated with fresh flowers of some kind. With a pale complexion for someone who spends such an enormous time outside, she rarely gets anything past a sun-kissed rosey cheek, but she tries to keep from burning too badly. With wide blue eyes and long lashes she can come off as almost a little alarming if she’s staring off into space in your direction, but she’s quick to smile and quite approachable!

    [1870] | Daffodil Meadow joins the Potts family as the 5th girl, much to her father’s chagrin. He keeps hoping for a boy. Her mother names her Daffodil despite being born on a particularly snowy day as she is a ray of sunshine in the cold. Daffy proves to be a quiet and independent babe.

    1873 | Dahlia joins the family and Amaryllis (along with cousin Asphodel) is off to Hogwarts. She’s sorted into ____.

    [1874] | Senna joins her cousin and sister at school and is sorted into _____.

    [1875] | Baby sister Calla joins the family as the final child; Basil gave up on boys after Daffy.

    [1876] | Thistle heads off to school and is sorted into _____. By now Daffy is well aware that she would like to join her sisters at school, but still enjoys being home with her younger sisters and spending time in the enormous family greenhouse and gardens.

    [1877] | Upheaval in the magical community sees the Potts moving to Hogsmeade, to Thimblewhit Turn on the edge of town. Their land is not nearly as extensive as it was previously, but they have enough to put up a decent greenhouse and plot a wide garden. They manage to get family florist shop up and running once again and open a storefront on High Street. The Black Lake provides Basil with work opportunities and Laurel quickly gets the shop into ship shape.

    [1879] | Chrysanthemum takes her turn to head off to Hogwarts. Daffy has still not displayed any magic, but she isn’t worried even if it concerns Basil.

    [1880] | Amaryllis and Asphodel graduate and Daffy finally displays her first sign of magic! While making repairs on the greenhouse, Basil knocks the ladder over and it nearly hits a young Calla, but Daffy levitates it up and away from her younger sister. Amaryllis takes on an inter position at Hogsmeade Hospital in the Potion and Plant Poisoning ward.

    [School Year 1881-82] | Senna graduates in the spring of 81 and heads off to work in the family florist shop. Then it’s finally Daffy’s turn! That fall she packs up her things and favorite cactus, Henrietta and joins her sisters at school. The  Sorting Hat barely touches her head before announcing she will be joining Ravenclaw. Her sisters are not surprised; Daff has always been an inquisitive and investigative child.

    [School Year 1882-83] | Naturally Daff excels in Herbology, but she also quite enjoys transfiguration and charms as well. Thistle graduates this year and joins her family at the flower shop.

    [School Year 1883-1884] | Daff picks up Runes and Earth Magic for her electives.

    [School Year 1884-85] | Unfortunately Aunt Myrtle is lost in the laughing plage, though they are fortunate to be unaffected by the fire. Dahlia joins her sisters at school and is sorted into _____. Fourth year is rather unremarkable, thankfully, after the Summer From Hell ™.

    School Year 1885-86] | While Daffy is gearing up for OWLs, Chrys is tackling NEWTs and poor little Calla is awaiting her turn at school in the fall.

    Personality: Mellow; spacey; intuitive; flighty; can be perceived as naive; sweet; caring; book-smart; gentle; basically she’s a bit of a hippie (think Luna-esque) who enjoys plants as much as she enjoys people. She takes things and people as they come and is unafraid to chat with just about anybody. She can be a bit of a flake, so will need lots of reminders during social things, but has a good heart that can easily be taken advantage of.
