These flowers grow outside of a house that love forgot where home was.

The first few flowers that come to life are charming and delicate, yet as the seasons go on and the next blossom comes, the plant spreads out of control, its roots taking up the space of neighbouring plants. This is similar to how the bond between two people in a romantic relationship occurs; certain traits of one another create a spark of interest, a significant other becomes the most attractive element in their partner's life, yet eventually those traits can become overpowering and destructive.
