Recycled Arrangement

For a couple of years I used this arrangement on the hearth and then on my bench outside the front door. I used some really nice flowers, but they were dirty from being outside and in the garage. I took the whole arrangement apart and washed the flowers in hot soapy water. I don't leave them in the water, just swish them around, and rinse in clean water. After a couple of minutes, they were ready to work with again.

I reused the floral foam and moss from the old arrangement and filled the flat backed basket with now clean and bright flowers. I added a new ribbon that I bought at the after Christmas discount. And there you have it. My front door is ready for Spring.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to my pals, the beautiful Flynn girls!  Their friendship and Irish charm are a blessing to me and all who know them.  Enjoy this beautiful day.
