Happy Monday

One of my favorite things to do on Mondays is to buy a bouquet of marked down flowers at the grocery store.  I got these at Krogers for $12.50 which was half off the regular $25 price. 

First thing to do is to take them out of the plastic, trim the ends and put them in a vase with some fresh clean water.  They need to drink this up for about an hour.

Next, I pulled out my low square vase, made a grid pattern using tape and started arranging my flowers.  I love the purple, yellow and orange combination.  Here is the result.

Not too shabby for $12.50!!  They usually last 3 or 4 days (sometimes a week).  Next time you are at the grocery check out the marked down flowers.  You can get some amazing deals.
