Hey Sugar Plums,

As I am typing this post, I am looking out the window and it;s CALM before the storm. The sky is gloomy and its windy!

As long as I can remember we always gifted flowers to family members on B-Day's or any other special occasions! During summer time, we always have flowers one or two vases full of gorgeous flowers! In my view flowers just add that special touch to the home. I grew up having flowers most of the time throughout the whole year!

I learned many different secrets about flowers, planing and taking care of it from my mommy, grandmother, and cousin. These secrets do work and I am so grateful that I know them and I can share them with you.

I change the water in the vase every 3 days or so.
I spray daily regular water to keep flowers hydrated, it keeps them stay fresh and beautiful longer. You can get the spay bottle anywhere, Wall mart, Michael's, Target...etc.

I never asked why ice is important for ROSES, but I always put it in the vase daily!

I cut once a week the stems each time shorter and shorter which rejuvenates and helps the flower stems observe the water they are in much better!

I love these tips! I've never heard the one about ice cubes - is that just for roses? Because I'd heard that room temperature water is best for watering plants, but maybe it's different for roses? Beautiful pics :)
