  • Frugal Flower: Carnations

    I like having fresh flowers in the house, but I’m much too lazy busy to change the water every other day. And I hate spending money on something that has to be thrown out within a week.

    So carnations are my favorite flower, not because of their appearance or smell, but because I’ve noticed that every time Marc gives me a bunch, they last with minimal attention for at least two weeks. I also very much appreciate that they don’t drop pollen all over my desk the way a daisy did a couple of weeks ago. I think they might last longer if I re-cut the ends, but I usually don’t have the time or energy to do that (though now that I’m thinking about it, maybe I’ll do it today!).

      Sunflowers are another one that last a good long while.
