Abiding Alstroemeria

Welcome to Week 7 of The Blooms

My local Valentine arrangement from last week seems to be lasting forever! Its been 10 days since I bought the blooms. I’ve been changing the water every other day which I think definitely helps, as does the fact that alstroemeria is known to be a long-lasting bloom. But just maybe it’s also because my flowers were local and cut close to the time I bought them?! Who knows!

What it does mean is that I decided to make this weeks arrangement with the best looking blooms from last week (week 6) plus some magnolia branches from my garden.

Plus two other arrangements. $40 for the cost of my original arrangement doesn’t seem quite so pricey any more!
