do you get flowers often?

when was the last time you got them?

was it just because or a special occasion?

what do you do with them when they die? do you dry them out or just toss em?

I love flowers. My favorites are gerbera daisies. They are such happy flowers!

The last time i got some flowers was from steves work when we had harry. It was very unexpected, but they were gorgeous. It was right before christmas so it was a more winter themed bouquet, but it was lovely. I did try to take care of them and trim them to keep them alive. as each piece died i threw it away, so it just got smaller and smaller. Think they lasted about a month.

I actually just got flowers on Satruday.. a bouqet of roses, beautiful.
I normally get them about five or sixx times a year....on b'days, valentines day, new years, of course......they also come with gifts....they better...lol
To be honest the reason why I got flower on Saturday was becuz the night before my husband was such an *****hole that he made me cry twice! So, the next day he kept calling me from work and of course, I would not answer. It actually pisses me off cuz he thinks he can do whatever and say whatever and break my heart , but then he can buy me flowers and everything is fine! well, that ain't the case.
To be honest, I don't really care much for flowers, but the reason why he keeps buying them is becuz when we were dating he kept buying me so much flowers that i had to keep buying vases, my house was filled with flowers. Then, when we were dating for a good number of years, I realized that he was no longer making any efforts, and that pissed me off! How come they try so **** hard when they are dating u, but once they know they have u and they feel comfortable, all romance is gone? I was not gonna have that! So, I had a row with him, and now i get flowers quite often. He just does not even know that I dont' even care for them....haha.
I used to put them in water, but now, i just dry them and once they are super dry, i use them as decorations in my abthroom, it is beautiful!.. You can add add scents of oil to them, or make them into potpourri.
Cheers ladies.

I LOVE fresh flowers. It's been awhile since I got some since they're not cheap. Maybe last Valentines or Mother's Day? I can't remember. I used to choose one or two flowers from an arrangement, dry them, and save them (still have my prom corsage!) but now, I just toss 'em.
