7 up for your flowers

My boyfriend came home after being away for 3 long weeks and he of course, had a bouquet of flowers! He said he didn’t have much time so he stopped by Wal-Mart (it all counts!) and got these lovely bright flowers for me! I wanted to make sure they would last at least for the week he would be here. He bought these last Saturday 5/3 and I cut the stems shorter added some water and 7UP! Yup, that’s right 7up the drink. I added about half a cup to the water and let them bloom in all there glory. Today I walked by them and expected them to be ready to be put out but nope, look at these beauties. There alive and happy and it makes me happy just looking at them. My camera of course is not the best but you can see these are happy flowers! Try it next time you get a wonderful bouquet from your loved ones!
Happy Mother’s Day!
