The Celosia have drooped somewhat alarmingly today but I've chopped the stems and given them fresh water and maybe they'll revive long enough for a few more shots.

Meanwhile I still have this sunflower - the leaves are a bit iffy but I like them all tatty like that.

Effective image Alison.

When we were in Provence the advice from a flower seller on cut sunflowers was: Add ice cubes to the water....never completely change the water ....just top it up.

Hello everyone - thank you all and thank you Pete for the nice surprise of the HC Smile That's rounded my evening off very nicely!

Thanks for the tip Alley - I've filled some trays up so shall have some ice-cubes by morning - If I can stretch these few out for just a couple more days it would be handy.

I've never seen a flower look so animated...he's kust asking for a hug thats all. Never mind the ice cubes, that guy's just lonely...

A slightly late return here but thank you all again! I'm afraid the sunflower didn't get a hug - it's now residing in a bin bag - sorry......

Anyway, the sun is out, the sky is blue and I'm off into town (Edinburgh) to see what I can find!
