Cure For Droopy Flowers

When those last few roses are feeling droopy
I give them a little support.
All I need is a straw. 
A clear one looks best.
 Cut a little off the end of the stem
 and remove any leaves.
Slip on the straw up to the head.
Back in fresh water.
Looking perky!



  1. What a great idea. I am definitely going to do this the next time my flowers droop. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you! I have some flowers right now that are drooping in my flower vase and will try the straws!

  3. That is a great tip! Thanks for sharing it!


  4. Why didn't I think of that? Great idea!

  5. Well that is definitely clever. Love this idea. Hugs, Marty

  6. I will be trying this!! We have roses ready to bloom in our garden and I can make some fragrant bouquets!
    Last night I came across a plastic pants hanger and snipped it into two chip clips! Such great ideas! Do you stay up at night thinking all these up??

  7. Thanks for the tip. I have one dozen long stemmed red roses (anniversary) sitting on the dining room table and was dreading the droop. Now I can push them along for a few more days.
