Baby Bouquets

Miniature bouquets are my girl's favorite new thing. They gather small jars, bottles, egg cups and little vases and fill them with whatever flowers they can find in the garden. Then we place the flowers in a 20% Sprite, 80% water solution for food. This is a great way to teach kids that flowers last longer with food, and surprisingly watered lemon soda is nearly perfect stuff. The citric acid keeps the stem vasculature open and deters bacterial and fungal growth while the sugars provide the flowers with needed energy. It's a fun lesson.

Today's bouquets were particularly photo-worthy.
