...usually, on pay-day or groccery shopping day,
(which are often the same day)
I will treat myself to some in-season flowers from the store floral section.
the past few weeks the choice has been tulips
I don't usually gravitate to pink colours but on this particular day
it was the only choice.
but already getting rather droopy after only
a few days.
When what to my wondering ears did hear, from my hubs,
that if you toss a penny in the water
of any type of flower
it will cause them to perk up and bloom longer.
In goes the penny
and the next day this is what I found.
the edges were saturated with colour,
they were dry, almost to the crisp stage,
they seemed perfectly preserved,
until I moved them and all the petals fell to the floor. So much for that bit of advice. (He had heard it earlier on an morning news-talk-radio show.)
Have you ever tried this?
