It's Valentines Day, or it's your anniversary, or maybe it's a special day in your sweetheart's life. You purchase a beautiful bunch of cut flowers. How do you keep them at their best while celebrating your important day?
This post shows the nine steps to increasing the life of cut flowers.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the freshly cut flowers.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the Mortar and Pestle. Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, states with a Pestle and Mortar, the mortar is the bowl. This one is made of glass and the pestle is a heavy, club-shaped object used for crushing and grinding.

Step 8: How long does it last? The aspirin water needs to be changed every two days. The cut flowers with aspirin will last longer than that preservative package given as part of the flower package. Some flowers last longer than a week, those preservative packages do not. Your home will most likely have aspirin on hand and this pill will aid the flowers to be at their best.
Step 9: Fig.9 shows a bunch of happy flowers.
