My husband is actually under strict orders not to buy me roses for Valentine’s Day — it’s just too expensive for something so fleeting. However, I fully expected a bouquet of flowers sometime this week, as they all go on clearance. Even at half price, I want to be sure they last so I can enjoy them for as long as possible.
I just love flowers — the beauty, the whimsy, the feeling that someone care enough about me to buy them, send them or pick them from the garden with their tiny hands. A vase of flowers is a sweet reminder of how much I’m loved. And, I want it to last forever!
Because clearance flowers are a common gift around here, I have found several ways to keep them looking fresh.
Oh, and if you didn’t get any flowers yesterday? Buy yourself something pretty on clearance today!
