Fresh flowers are one of my favorite ways to make my home complete. They smell great and they have such amazing texture. The ferns are cut from my own garden, but my hydrangeas aren't quite large enough to take cuttings from yet!
Did you know hydrangeas will last twice as long if you submerge them in cool water for 30 minutes before arranging? I dip the freshly trimmed stems in alum (a pickling spice) and spray them with Crowning Glory.
