Flowers

Usually our flowers are great.

Even the tulips remain erect. Our flowers usually stretch to a week before they look bad.

But sometimes we make poor choices. Two days and we couldn't bear them any longer and chucked them out.

  1. Maybe the infrared rays of the nearby remote control killed off your flowers?

  3. We're lucky enough to have this place (not withstanding they weren't at school on the day they did spelling) on our doorstep. Run by telechef Curtis Stone's family.

  4. More here. (And no, I'm not related or taking a kickback, they're just a good local mob.)

  5. Victor, even as they were being arranged, they were an obvious fail.

    Diane, week in week out, we buy a bunch of flowers.

    LS, they just sling you the odd cheap bunch then. Mr Stone's family hey. Wonder if they own Coles shares.

  7. River, I have no idea. They weren't something we normally buy and I not something I have seen. We walked on the wild side with flowers that Saturday and failed.

  8. I saw some gorgeous freesias today that smelled divine, should have purchased them.

  9. Or Fen, you could have just bought them. If I saw freesias, I certainly would have snapped them up.

  10. You have to smell them first to make sure they are proper ones, I can't go for ones that have no scent.

  11. Around our burgh freesias populate quite a few nature strips, not sure whether they were deliberately planted or self sown, they are of the highly perfumed variety and are a joy to behold and benose.

  12. Fen, freesias that don't smell should be bred out.

    Sounds delightful LS. Johnny Freesia spreading his seed.
