The Easter break may find you meeting up with family, going to church, or just simply enjoying the extended break and relaxing at home.
For me, the epitome of Spring and Easter, is seeing the daffodils bobbing up and down on the road sides, in gardens and in the home.
Today, I'm bringing you a quick tip on these lovely flowers that I learnt whilst training as a florist.
Did you know that daffodils ideally should be arranged in water on their own?
Daffodils produce a sap when they are cut, which reduces the life of other cut flowers if mixed.
If you want to arrange them with say other spring flowers, such as tulips, the best thing to do is cut the stems of the daffodils and stand in a vase of clean water for a couple of hours to let the sap leak out and then run the stems under some cold water. You can then arrange them with other flowers.
Personally, I think they look just fabulous on their own :D
My Easter Sunday morning. You can't beat a Nespresso coffee in a Wrendale mug (Good Hare Day), and a gluten free hot cross bun :D
Have an enjoyable Easter Sunday Friends and see you next week!
