Tipsy Tuesday (#219)

The Rev's flowers are blooming, which means I get to enjoy vases of fresh flowers in the house.

Tip #219

Add these common household ingredients to the water in your flower vase to keep your blooms beautiful.

Mix 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons sugar with the vase water before adding the flowers. Be sure to change the water (with more vinegar and sugar) every few days to enhance your flowers’ longevity.

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!**

Considering I can't seem to keep ANYthing alive these days, I'll have to remember these tips...for the flowers, at least. lol

Good to know, though I have to admit I am bad about even changing the water and adding more.

Doesn't cutting them at an angle under water help too? I think there was another tip my step mom gave me for flowers but I can't remember-- this is good to know!
