Hermione thought of the first time she'd visited the Burrow. She remembered a row of poppies along the fence, shameless scarlets swaying like ballroom dancers in the breeze. She remembered gnomes peeking over earth berms, thinking themselves hidden but giving themselves away with their red peaked caps. And she remembered the Weasleys, and how amazed she'd been with all the shades of ginger hair.

Now she watched as Ron picked his way through the garden. Ginger hair had gone grey and Gnome-No-More had eliminated the garden menace. But Molly's poppies, they still danced, their wanton scarlet making Hermione feel young.
