Playing around with the somewhat contrasting combination of desaturation and sunlight. Aren't tulips pretty? I'd love to be able to stand in a sea of them in Holland. Maybe I'd find something like that at Butchart or VanDusen Gardens? Can't wait for Spring!
A symbol of elegance and beauty, calla lily blooms have an interesting construction: simple, sturdy and curvy. These bulbs generally need to be winterized in Canada, although people often report forgetting the bulbs in the ground and finding that the rolled paper-like, trumpet blooms still come up the following season. You'll probably only have success like this if your frosts are mild.
It's always a challenge to keep fresh roses for an extended period. I've heard of adding a penny to the vase water, or mixing in a crushed Tylenol tablet in order to help preserve flowers. Barring these suggested solutions, I find that a photograph is the best way to keep flowers fresh for a looong time.
