Many moons ago, I read about woman who bought herself a mixed bouquet of flowers at the market. That in
itself is not so unusual, but at the time of the article, it had lasted years and the beautiful blooms continued
to give her as much joy as the first day of purchase. How is this, you ask? Well, it seems, at the end of the
week some of the flowers still looked pretty while the others were ready for the compost pile...it seemed a
shame to throw them all out so she sorted them, gave the nice ones a good stem trim and fresh water and
off she went to do her weekly shopping.
While at the market she saw a small bunch of carnations that would be just right to fill in for the ones that
she just removed, so in the basket they went. Next week she sorted out the spent blooms again, went
shopping and came home with a small bundle of tulips and next week the same.....and so the Eternal
Bouquet was born.
Above, are the flowers that my Mr. brought me a week ago and as you can see, some are done but others
are still pretty. So, I was reminded of the story I just shared and decided that I might try my hand at the 'E'
bouquet. I will let you know how it goes.
Have you heard of this or perhaps you do this yourself?
Have a happy weekend my friends....Don't forget the clock...Spring Forward! xo
