I love cutting fresh flowers from my garden to use for all kinds of events. What a great way to brighten up your mood! Over the years, I have learned a few things to help enjoy them longer. Always thoroughly wash and rinse your vase and fill with cold water. Cut steams at an angle and place them right into the vase. Keep the flowers out of the direct sunlight and change the water every other day. The possibilities are endless this time of year!
