Flower Events[5]

Purple Flower Event

Speak to Laney between 11 AM and 4 PM on Monday or Thursday when she has a Purple Flower or higher. She will take you to the town square and give you a brief lesson about the statue in the center of town. She then asks you if you like this village as much as she does. 

If the first option is chosen ("Yea! I like it a lot!"), Laney happily tells that you will love the town even more as you learn more about it and that she couldn't imagine living elsewhere. Choosing the second option ("Not really...") will make Laney disappointed that you feel that way.

Blue Flower Event

Speak to Laney between 11 AM and 4 PM on Thursday when she has a blue flower or higher, as long as you have seen her purple flower event has been seen. As Laney offers you her homemade cheesecake, she wants you to try it.

Choosing the first option ("Thanks. I will!") will make Laney slightly embarrassed, but thanks you too. Although Laney loves to bake, she admits that seeing others happy eating her food is really what she loves the most. If the second option is chosen ("I'm not hungry. Sorry."), Laney understands and takes the cheesecake back, deciding that she will ask somebody else to eat her cheesecake instead.

Green Flower Event

Go to the Harvest Goddess' Spring between 6 PM and 8 PM on a sunny or snowy Wednesday. Laney has a green flower level or higher and you have seen her purple and blue flower events.

Laney seems to have something on her mind. When confronted, she is worried about your feelings about living in Bluebell. She wonders if you miss your old village and if it made you sad to leave.

Choosing the first option ("At first, but not now.") will make Laney a little bit relieved, wanting you to sell baked goods to people in different cities, but isn't sure that she could ever bring herself to leave Bluebell. She thanks you for helping her feel better. If the second option is chosen ("Yeah. Terribly sad."), Laney will say that it would also be difficult if she ever had to move too. 

Yellow Flower Event

Meet Laney by the Church between 1 PM and 3 PM on a sunny or snowy Monday. Laney is at a yellow flower level or higher and her previous events have been seen. Additionally, Howard has 25,000 FP or higher while Georgia is at purple flower or higher.

Georgia is looking for Laney and eventually finds her by the Church. Laney offered to help her dad at the cafe on her day-off and Howard is wondering where she is. As Laney was out for a walk and forgot all about it, you offer to help Laney and the duo go back to the cafe.

Back at the cafe, Howard comments on the fact that you were spending time with Laney. She explains that you have volunteered to help her work at the cafe today, which Howard agrees. After working, Howard thanks you for your help so do Laney. She asks you how you are feeling.

If the first option is chosen, Howard suggests that you should leave your farm to come and full-time at the cafe as Laney's husband. Laney embarrassingly apologizes for her dad's comment and as time goes by, she promises that the duo will do something more fun the next time.
