These leafy Ranunculus are thirsty little blighters and also tend to droop rather quickly. The best way to revive them it seems is simply chopping the stem down a bit until you run out of suitable vases to put them in.
They're currently plonked in this glass - it does the job and I quite like the haphazard arrangement - the norm for me.
Originally they were blasted with light but then changed my mind as I liked the shadow so simply had them lit by a daylight bulb overhead and a 6 second exposure - that seemed to work ok.
Given my usual dollop of Lucisart Whyeth - sorry I'm still in love with it!
