In a Vase on Monday
This year I’ve finally worked out how to keep lilacs in vases for longer… I added a little bit of plant food into the water (as I have been for all the vases) and sure enough, instead of lasting only a few hours before drooping, this way they’ve lasted a 5-7 days or even longer.
I really wish I had taken my camera to my parent’s house at the weekend. My mum’s Peonies are out, so I made her a peony and lilac vase. It was lovely; the blooms on her very old Peonies are massive (they’re taken from her great-grandfather, so must be around 100 years old) and were only weighed down by overnight rains so I decided they were better off in the house rather than face-down in the grass.
