When I was working, I used to treat myself to fresh flowers every week. After I retired it was an expense I had to cut back on, but I hated seeing my vase standing empty. I found a broken branch, painted it white and popped it in the vase. Then I dangled some elephant decorations from the twigs. Now I don't miss my fresh flowers one bit!
