It was our Anniversary on September 5th!
Who knew all those years ago what a busy time the first few days of September would be!
So busy in fact that there have been years when I forgot and Mr. S was the one who reminded me!
This year….Mr. S. surprised me with flowers delivered to school!!
He was going off on a fishing trip….I was busy with the first days of school…
The flowers were a special way to celebrate our Anniversary!
This photo doesn’t do the arrangement justice!
It was stunning and brightened my office for the whole week!
I loved the way the florist packed all the unique flowers into the glass vase and used a hosta leaf inside to disguise the stems.
Hmmmm….I am going to have to try that!
I brought it home for the weekend and by Sunday night it was looking a little droopy!
So….This is what I did…..
I simple took the flowers out of the original vase…..put some floral foam in another vase and rearranged them….I added 1 Gerbera Daisy from the garden….
Mr. S. said he actually liked this one better……what a guy!!!!
THAT arrangement lasted a whole week……now it is Saturday Morning….
AND….the arrangement looked like this…..
But not for long….
One last consolidation…..
So now these flowers are 10 days old….
I can probably get at least another 4 or 5 days out of them!!!
Thanks for the flowers Mr. S!
You all have a great day….we are off to a fun Pop-Up shop where the Sweetwater Son-In-Law is showing off the great looking shoes he designs and sells….
I will write more about that soon….but if you live in the Minneapolis Area….the event is called Northern Grade!
Great Fun…Great Shopping….Great People Watching!
Here is the link to the Northern Grade Website!
Maybe we will see you there!
