I try and save my bouquets as long as possible by keeping the water fresh & cutting and re-cutting the stems often until they are only tall enough to stand in a mug of water :-)
One of the reasons I love daisies so much ... they last for weeks and weeks.
The french pussy willow bush in our garden is full of fluffy little puffs ~ oh I love pussy willow & having something new and blooming in the garden in February is a bonus !
I sent my husband outside with secateurs & my favourite gathering bucket and asked him to collect me a big handful of all different sizes.
With a bucket full of tall stems, I began clipping away ...
and filled in all the empty spaces in the vases with pussy willow branches ♥
