A Bouquet Update!

Update for the diy bouquet post:

Astonishingly the flowers lasted about 5 days in water!!!

The flowers were weak at that point, (i.e. shake it and it would become a bouquet of stems) but they still looked pretty!

An exception was the lilacs, those did not last more than 2-3 days before they completely shrunk and wilted.

An interesting fact I found is that tulips keep growing after they have been cut, so it was amusing to see the tulips sprouting out of the bouquet!

I have to say I'm pretty happy with those supermarket flowers!
