My Top Ten Picks From MM #111

How to enjoy a bouquet of flowers...longer.

I usually use flowers from my yard as bouquets. But sometimes it's nice to receive a lovely bunch of store bought flowers from your sweetie.  I check them daily, trimming the bottom of the stems, discarding dead pieces, changing both the water and the container. Oh, and making sure to trim away any leaves below the water line, to keep the water from turning green.

I made three smaller bouquets from one. An all green one, for the living room.
One with the fragrant pink flowers.........smells soo good! This one is for my bedroom.

and a cutesie little all white one, for the kitchen window.
