Blooms and greens from my lawn and garden or the clearance buckets perched in a local grocery store floral department display become the stars of the window seal or tabletop spring flower show.

It might be a dollar store glass container, vintage Mason jar, ironstone creamer pitcher, the antique rose bowl Dave the Builder gifted me with years ago, or these eye catching-soon to be in my buy now pickup later cart- pretty in pink vases that becomes the vessel of choice.
The point is whatever you’ve got and whatever suits your floral arrangement fancy is perfect.
Fill vase with tepid water, add one teaspoon of vodka and one teaspoon granulated sugar.
Tepid water allows for quicker water absorption, and the vodka and sugar combination delays wilting.
Drop a copper penny in to the vase to help deter the growth of fungus or bacteria.

I do love a season that shows out.
