“We need to go to the plant shop and get some new flowers for the garden,” Liz told her husband.
“Didn’t we get a whole lot of new plants last year?” Larry asked.
“Yes,” Liz answered, “but those were annuals. They last only one year and need to be replanted each spring.”
“Don’t they have flowers that grow back each year?”
“Yes,” Liz said, “Perennials. But they bloom for just a few weeks each year, whereas annuals provide beautiful colors from spring through fall.”
“Who knew?” Larry said.
“At least one of us has a green thumb,” Liz said.
