Maybe relying on happiness to show up and give you something everyday is a mistake. That way when we see her next, she can stick around a little longer. Happiness likes to be appreciated, and when she gets taken for granted, she leaves.

Its really your choice if you walk away and ignore them, they will still be there when you get home OR you can talk to them, reassure them that the flowers will still be there in the morning, and they will go back inside for awhile.
