Testing a Child's Theory

Giada discovered a fallen tree branch in the playground. It already had tiny buds waiting to bloom.  How could she save it?
"I want to keep this so it will grow big flowers!" she said.
"How can you keep it?" the teacher asked.
"We can take it inside and put it in some water to make it grow."
So the teacher placed the branch in a container of water and over the course of a few weeks the tiny buds began to open.
"What happened?" the teacher asked.
"My buds did grow!" she replied.
Giada's theory was correct-a little water preserved her fallen tree branch.
