My husband is not the flowers-and-chocolate type of guy. This year he surprised me.

I kept the flowers until the heads of the roses were hanging limp and ridiculous. We had a sort of an Adam's Family meet home school science lesson moment.

Everyone's heard of people with "green thumbs", but my daughter is more original.

The kids helped me spread the petals on the front porch and sidewalk. It was a party. The red petals really stand out against the winter grayness. Just opening my front door makes me smile.

I don't think I have ever enjoyed flowers as much as I enjoyed these flowers.

I always enjoy going to The Girl Next Door. Her Feel Good Friday is especially fun.

I thought I'd also give Friday Follow a try this week.

Your daughter is beautiful!

I always let flowers die until it is just gross, but what you did was so cool!

How fun. I too keep my flowers until they look so sad and wilty. I always feel guilty taking them early to dry because it's like wasting a nice flower...

I'm glad you got great use out of the flowers too. Kudos to the hubby for a great gift.

I love that idea! I always hate to throw out cut flowers, and this way you get to enoyt them so much longer!

Flowers that are unexpected are so way more excellent.
