It always warms my heart to receive a bouquet of flowers. This is a frequent occurrence for me, due to my many, many suitors. At the same time, taking care of flowers also brings me a lot of stress. After all, a bouquet of flowers, much like love, is fleeting. The wilt is inevitable—but it doesn’t have to be immediate. When properly cared for, your bouquet can last around seven to 12 days, depending on the types of flowers.
