This weekend’s adventure: Think spring by gifting a bouquet of flowers to someone you love or to yourself.
What to know: Ensure your flowers stay vibrant and last for as long as possible by refreshing their water, keeping them out direct sunlight and following these other tips from local experts.
My experience: Spring in Vermont, as exemplified this week, is temperamental at best. On Monday, during an early evening walk, I spotted the bright purple buds of the crocus flower on several neighbors’ lawns. The green, ribbon-like leaves of tulips sprouted tentatively in dormant gardens.
But for yet another holiday, many of us are not gathering together this year, and so the recent, wet and snowy weather might feel extra dismal.
