flowers

 A medium bouquet from the Tailgate Market



Some Dahlias, and even Queen Anne's Lace, some Zinnias, and one sunflower-like-bloom. Unfortuately the sunflower drooped right away...so I'm going to add some of that sugar-solution that comes with some bouquets...maybe it will help.

That was Sat.

This was Mon...


I had noticed other sunflowers in their bouquets looked droopy, but I had a fresh one. I did cut a couple of inches off the bottom of the stem...this is so sad.

By Tues. I had to throw a few things away that were shedding all over the table.

  1. Ha ha, I composed this blog post, then forgot to post the time to early morning, as I always do. So this morning when I turned on blogger, there weren't any comments from my friends who arise before me. I was missing you! Hope you have a great day!

  2. Beautiful! I don't know why some flowers droop. Sounds like you did all the right things.

    1. This bouquet was a bit of a disappointment. I bought my next flowers at a grocery store, where they would obviously have been picked a longer time before I got them in my vase.

  3. Barbara, Great looking bouquet in that first photo... Some flowers just do better once they been cut and put in a vase. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. I've had many sunflowers in vases for weeks at a time...so I was surprised these were so wilted. Oh well, I'll get some different ones somewhere else.

    1. Thanks...I made the vase (being an ex-potter and all.)
