Flower Rescue

Good morning!

While at Trader Joe's the other day I bought some gorgeous, red, Gerbera daisies for my kitchen. This morning I woke up to this!!
Bummer! Two droopy stems! The flowers themselves are still beautiful. So here is the easy fix...

Take a clear or green straw, for these thick stems I used a milkshake straw. (Maddie uses them for her soup, I will wash the green ones and save them for this purpose.)
Cut the straw so the a portion of the stem is in the water and slide on to the stem.

I was able to use one straw for both flowers.
And there you have it...  new life for droopy flowers, you would normally have to toss these out!

Now I can enjoy them for a few more days.

Cheerful!! ~S
