When we went flower picking (see last post), I was looking for baby’s breath — those small white flowers with long stalks. Where we stopped, the flower farmer only had asters, so I settled for asters. For P30, I got a huge bunch that was enough to fill four vases. I learned for making flowers stay in place without the use of floral foam from a Martha Stewart book: make a criss-cross of tape at the opening of the flower vase and place flowers in the squares in between the tapes. For the P30 bunch, I was able to make 4 floral arrangements — 2 placed in huge mugs, 1 in a short glass flower vase and another one in a bottle I saved.
