But flowers can be expensive. My local grocery store occasionally has a good deal on discounted flowers; if you don't mind wilted petals or leaves.
So here's my tip to stay on budget...
Annuals make excellent cut flowers! You can fill a vase with just a few stems.
A pint-sized container is usually under $2 at Home Depot. That's a lot cheaper than a $12.50 bouquet at Whole Foods.
It's the same as cutting flowers from your garden.
Garden centers are filled with beautiful flowers. I chose Torenia because of its trumpet-shaped blooms.
I simply cut the stems above the soil, then placed them in warm water.
*They're easy to propagate too.
Here's a few arrangements.
Yellow flowers are my favorite, although Torenia is available in many colors.
Mums were on sale for .98 this weekend at Home Depot. I bet they would also be pretty displayed this time of year.
I hope this post inspires you to go out and buy some flowers(annuals) this week!
