Many of you will be getting a bouquet of flowers this weekend in honor of Valentine’s Day. I love getting flowers but hate that they last for such a short time. In order to make your flowers last longer, you should keep your water clean so that your stems stay healthy. Your blooms will last longer if you change your water every other day or more often if you can see that it needs to be changed. You should also cut 1/2 inch off of your stems with a sharp knife. Enjoy and teach your children to always smell the roses!
