How to get the most out of a beautiful bouquet

How to get the most out of a beautiful bouquet

 Spring flowers

I love spending time with flowers. For me, flowers are the pets of the plant world. Like pets, they help reduce stress and make me feel happier.

Imagine how pleased I was when I recently received this stunning Spring bouquet.

It’s hard for me to allow a beautiful bouquet to sit unappreciated in a room, so I often move it to whatever room I'm spending time in that day; from the dining table to the computer table, to the kitchen counter while I prepare dinner and then back to the table while we eat. I might even bring it to the bedroom at the end of the day and place it on a bedside table to see first thing in the morning. 

If it's a big bouquet with blooms galore, I snag a few individual stems from the bunch and place each in a vase of its very own. I scatter these wee arrangements about our home to greet me, no matter where I turn.

If a bloom gets accidentally knocked off, don't despair. Let it live out its final days floating in a bowl of water on your coffee table.
