They hadn't been thieves before, at least. Noble had not been a murderer before either. Now he was one. Did thieving make a difference, at this point?

There are some things I know for certain; always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder,
keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck,
and fall in love whenever you can.

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. 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!

With a warm air about her that invites people in, she has a dreamy look to her that often signifies she is daydreaming or running numbers in her head, either are likely. She often wears comfortable cotton dresses in bright colors and floral patterns and an apron at work. It is not uncommon to find dirt or charcoal smudged on her cheeks, especially when she is hard at work. She is left handed for both wandwork and writing.
Another Girl
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.
And Again
Dahlia joins the family and Amaryllis is off to Hogwarts. She’s sorted into - - -.
Senna joins her sister at school and is sorted into - - -.
And the Last
Baby sister Calla joins the family as the final child; Basil gave up on boys after Daffy.
Thistle heads off to school and is sorted into Ravenclaw. 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.
To Hogsmeade!
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 the 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.
Zinnia 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.
Amaryllis graduates 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 intern position at Hogsmeade Hospital in the Potion and Plant Poisoning ward.
First Year
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. She meets one Noble Greengrass through a friend who she desperately needs help from in Potions class and he is Good at It.
Second Year
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. Daffy officially adopts Jack Dorset into the family and her parents don’t say much of anything about it; Basil is pleased to have a boy around.
Third Year
Daff picks up Runes and Earth Magic for her electives. This might be the first time she notices Noble is a Boy and has some sort of feelings about it that she shoves way down deep; they’re just friends after all.
Fourth Year
The family is missed by both the plague and the fire, thank Merlin.. Dahlia joins her sisters at school and is sorted into Hufflepuff. Fourth year is rather unremarkable, though her friendship with Noble is steady, which she is thankful for, after the Summer From Hell™.
Fifth Year
OWLS and kisses and oh boy is it a big year! OWLs go about as expected and she keeps the classes she excels at. Most notably, Noble reveals his feelings for her and Daff is finally allowed to express her own which culminates in a kiss. Woo!
Sixth Year
Daffy decides to keep relatively few NEWT level courses, Astronomy, Runes, Charms, Herbology and Transfiguration. It’s nice not to have to worry about the others and naturally, she spends lots of time in the greenhouses as she does not have Noble around to keep her company.
Seventh Year
Though Daffy is not overly concerned about graduating or debuting for that matter (she hardly ever remembers the latter anyway). She does well enough in her current classes and spends most of her free time sketching or in the greenhouses. Daffy figures she’ll be at her mother’s shop after graduation anyway, what’s the point in stressing over grades that won’t matter in the long run? All Daff is concerned about is trying to make Noble’s promise come true.
Senna marries in the summer. Daffy is obviously happy for her sister, but with Thistle's lack of interest and Zinnia closer to courting herself, Daffy is starting to feel the pressure coming her way to get out of the house and therefore Noble's promise.

Late in the year, Noble's father dies and Daff cannot imagine everything he and his family are now going through. She does her best to quietly support from the sidelines. Though she keeps the exact thoughts to herself, Daff selfishly worries that their plans have come to a disastrous halt, but doesn't say anything about it. Everything they planned to do is starting to crumble around them and Daff doesn't know what to do.
While she and Noble are able to carry on their romance for a while, adulthood starts to get in the way and March sees a disastrous fight that leads to them splitting up. Noble is hiding something from her and won’t tell her what. Daff can’t handle the secrecy and ends things. She regrets it immediately but cannot do much about it. She does meet one Elias Grimstone when he crash-lands in her pumpkins that April, the two form an easy friendship. However, much of this year is spent in a bit of a daze, though she cannot tell anyone about it. She is not sleeping and it’s not going well for her.

In November a disgruntled bachelor blows up the shop Daffy is hospitalized in the aftermath. This leads to some awkward run-ins with Noble that are still painful.
A lot happens this year. Daffy, in all her infinite stupidity, offers to do the flowers for Noble’s sister’s wedding. That hurts and it ends in an awkward conversation in which she admits to still being in love with him, but it doesn’t go well. Daff turns her attention to the shop and throws herself into her professional life, which leads her mother to host a flower show in May. She and Elias have continued their correspondence and she invites him, only to be interrupted by a mutual friend. Daff gets a funny feeling and backs off, retreating into her own endeavors to open her own shop.

Daff purchases a small shop in London and it consumes her time to the point where she is so exhausted and finally sleeping, but pleasantly busy too. It’s a good change for her. Elias makes an appearance after she slowed their letters to a halt over the summer. Daff confesses what happened (without going into detail) and some mutual feelings are made known.
This year's birthday goes much better than the year before. She is gifted a beautiful, one-of-a-kind broom and admits to having fallen in love with Elias. They agree to keep taking things slowly, but Daff is just hoping that with the progression of Dahlia's own courtship, Daff and Elias can make things more official.

This works out well as Mr. Honeyduke asks Dahlia to marry him in April with a summer wedding planned.

The very official courtship between Daff and Elias is established shortly after, but May isn't quite as delightful. A huge upheaval between Daff and Elias has them in a bad spot; made even more difficult by the added fact of a misunderstanding with their mutual friend, Irene Crawley. It's a mess!

Daffy is an old soul who enjoys plants as much as she enjoys people. An ambivert, she thoroughly enjoys socializing and working with people. She takes things and people as they come and is unafraid to chat with just about anybody and will happily listen to people go on about whatever it is they are passionate about. However, she will need time to recharge on her own, or with her favorite people. She has a good heart that can easily be taken advantage of.
Elias felt suddenly allowed to look, to drink in the sight of her like she was a work of art, herself. The rosy smudges on her cheeks, long eyelashes framing the blue sky in her eyes, every wisp of hair around her face that told him she’d been hard at work all day.

Jack had opened his mouth to answer when he felt the pressure of someone leaning on his shoulder. He didn't need to turn his head to see who it was, there was a familiarity there that removed any question of it. Besides who else would it be?
- Jack Dorset
