So what do you do when you walk into the dining room only to find some of your newly purchased supposedly fresh cut flowers drooping down towards the dining room table?
My short story goes like this...
On Sunday Mr. Rosemary Lane picked up two bunches of my favorite flower, tulips, for the center of the dining table. You see I had invited my Aunt Ann and sister Kim up for dinner to celebrate our Aunt's birthday. (She turned 85 last week...God bless her.) Today I was bummed out to find 3 of my beautiful tulips trying to kiss the tabletop.
Pretty droopy huh?
So how, in only 20 minutes, did I get my tulip looking as fresh as a daisy!
(Yup it is the same tulip in both pictures)
Luckily for me not only is Mr. Rosemary Lane a handsome fellow but he is also pretty smart too! He told me to cut a little off of the stems and then lay the flowers down flat in a pan filled with water.
And in 20 minutes all three flowers were like new!
Pretty cool right??
This trick works with roses as well and most likely with many other types of fresh cut flowers.
And that my friends is how to revive a wilting flower.
Hope you are enjoying a great Wednesday!!!
