for the love of flowers & little girls' potions
Well knowing these are possibly the ONLY bunches of flowers i will get all year (last Sunday's Mother's Day!!) i am forcing them to live beyond their days. So i've refashioned them into one new large bouquet, revived their stems & super fresh water. Naturally my middle girls could NOT resist the opportunity to make potions from the disgarded flower petals. Let's just say, it got ugly after this fresh, dry & looks-good-enough-to-eat stage (think slops of water & food colouring, eekk).
All this gorgeous green foliage went straight from sink to compost - it is among friends now - it was really starting to smell like compost!!
