About Good Scents

The cut flower business ended in 2011 but I continue to post other items about gardening.

Bouquets for April 13th and 17th, 2009

The first bouquets of 2009 looked very similar to the one shown below. This picture was taken on Tuesday evening of a bouquet made up for Monday. In the bouquets for Monday, I had cut some of the daffodils too early and they did not all open properly. They still looked OK until they started to actually fade, but they didn't look exactly like daffodils. You can see how the daffodils look like yellow tube flowers instead of daffodils.

Here is the same bouquet on Wednesday evening. The tulip stems have lengthened even more now.

On Thursday evening I recut the tulips to different lengths and rearranged them. The daffodils are looking pretty tired.

And here they are again on Friday evening.

Last of all is a picture from Saturday. I pulled out the daffodils but the tulips are still looking pretty good.
