Sent Flowers Becoming Spent Flowers

As I was breaking down the beautiful bouquets mom and I received – we had a trying month – and readying them for the compost pile, I couldn’t help but notice that despite being worn they retained their beauty.

The thought was sweet and the scent was too so I’m sharing with Sunday Stills Challenge.

  1. I am always impressed with how long florals last if cared for properly, Susanne! Such beautiful bouquets; I’m sure you and your mom really enjoyed seeing and smelling them! Perfect for “sweet!”

    • Thanks, Terri. It was so thoughtful of family members to send flowers. I kept thinning them out as needed but even after the 10th day (today) they looked beautiful, even when piled in a heap! 🙂

  2. I’m sorry to hear you’ve had a difficult month 😞 You’re right though, these flowers are lovely. I think I’d be hanging on to then for a few days yet!

    • Thankfully, we made it through! 😊 The bouquets were gorgeous and I kept thinning them out.. a few of the best remain and the rest have been composted.
