Italia Gal was over for lunch 2 weeks ago and she brought a bouquet. It had more yellow flowers and some green as well, but for 2 weeks in (and I totally got busy and didn't cut them or change their water like I normally would!) they still look fantastic! They're now in one of our bathrooms, and make it cheerful.
And last week G got me the bouquet at the top from Trader Joe. Seriously, for $3.99 I have an amazing, bright bouquet in my kitchen. And I didn't even ask for flowers! It's one of the things he picked up while I was writing the office post!
To keep flowers fresh, make sure you clear off any leaves that will touch the water, change the water every 2-3 days, and I usually trim a tiny bit then as well. I've found flowers prefer water that is somewhat lukewarm, just a tip.
Any other tips for keeping cut flowers fresh? I've managed to make many a bouquet last a month, but I'm always up for advice!
