I love when a bouquet of fancy flowers comes with a glass vase,
showcasing the stunning stems that so often get overlooked.
They do so much work behind the scenes:
storing nutrients,
generating new plant tissue,
transporting fluids from root-to-shoot,
lifting the leaves and flowers up to the light.
So I always try to look a little closer
and give a little prayer of thanks for those glorious green stems.
Without them, there’d be no flowers! Gasp!
That’s why whenever a florist cares enough
to display the stems like a work of art,
it makes my heart go BLOOM!
