Monday brings the chance to share cut flowers from the garden by joining in Cathy’s weekly challenge In A Vase On Monday.
My cyclamen houseplants are in full bloom. For several days the flowers on one particular plant kept wilting, so I decided to cut all of its blooms to use for an arrangement. First, to restore their turgidty and prepare them for use, I placed the cut stems into a cup of water for a few hours.
Later I noticed the rejuvenated white flowers looked very pleasing in the blue ceramic mug. Unconsciously I had grabbed a container that highlighted them well, so I decided to enjoy them just as they were.
