Flowers in the house are such a joy, especially when it is dreary, windy and cold outside.
I do just about everything I can think of to keep them fresh for as long as is possible. I put ice in the water, mix the little flower fresh powder in and keep them away from heat sources.
Even so, I came down this morning to find the blooms fully open, the stems bending low and several petals lying limp on my kitchen counter.
Good bye sweet tulips, I'm really going to miss you.
