So I've got a weed to pick with a local florist. Last Valentine's day, Jahred surprised me with flowers...truly a surprise (applause here). Although I'm not the typical "flowers and chocolate" gal, I'm also not the "drab apartment for a year" kind of gal. He really had few options this year; the flowers were a welcome edition. So I took their picture.
As the week passed, so did many of the blooms. I weened them down until only a sprig of green and two Calla Lilly remained. When we left two weeks ago for Florida, they still looked lively so I left them where they stood.
Walking in the door Tuesday night, I was shocked to see that my flowers were still living?! I had expected Jahred to dispose of their rotting selves at least a week ago. So, yesterday I continued to enjoy them when a sneaky though came to mind...what if these aren't REAL? Asking Jahred for his opinion, he removed one Lilly from the water filled vase and twisted the stem into a perfect corkscrew...and it stayed. OMG, they're FAKE!
Ok, maybe it's just me...in the dark about mixing live and artificial flowers in arrangements? Needless to say, they're still pretty and remain right were they were...hmmmmm....makes you think.
