Are these flowers gorgeous or what? They came in the mail, about a week ago. I was actually very surprised to receive them, because they are from good friends of my son and his wife, whom I do not know very well. They came UPS from a company called ProFlowers. They were not opened up yet, and all I had to do was cut the stems an inch, and put them in room temperature water with some added packet of powder, and they opened up in about 24 hours. Three days later, I changed the solution and cut the stems again. I cannot believe how beautiful they are still. Here are two different sides of the bouquet.
