Monday, I bought a couple of flowers on my way home from the phone shop. Having a little cash this month, and needing a change, I picked out two chrysanthemums and a cheap bunch of filler leaves. I had an idea of what I wanted, but no actual experience handling flowers.
I only had a rough layout in my mind: the white one would be taller and the leaves in the back would make a W shape.
Once I got home, I took out a vase that I never used, and started cutting. I remembered mom always said to cut the stems on an angle. From there, I arranged the flowers how I wanted them before putting them in the vase.
Big mistake. The neck of the vase was yoo narrow to use everything, so I put the flowers first, then added the greens.
