Flowers Haven’t Gotten the Best of Me Yet

Dear Flowers,

You may think you’ve gotten the best of me, but it’s not over until it’s over. I’ll admit, I’ve been discouraged and afraid to tame you into submission. But after learning about your species through sites like types-of-flowers.org, observing your formations in various bouquets and gathering intelligence from Farmers Market flower growers, I’m slowly but surely becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Granted, I had planned on letting you live naturally in potted containers as centerpieces, but that just won’t fly for bridesmaid bouquet. And frankly, you should be worried, because I’m beginning to like this picking and pruning business. I could get used to having you around, brightening up the place with a hint of color and a lot of personality. I know I’m still learning, but don’t worry. I’ll make sure each and every one of you looks like a star, come May. T-9 months to go. Wish me luck!

Yours truly,

An I’m not quite so scerred anymore bride-to-be

  1. Don’t give up! When using certain flowers make sure you google handling instructions. Some varieties are SUPER picky. For example, hydrangeas are super hardy and gorgeous but don’t do well in oasis (floral foam) and cannot be put in the fridge with anything else as if there is any sort of fruit/vegetable in the fridge it will turn the hydrangeas brown.
