Oh yeah?  What's in the *back* yard, Emma?

May I suggest carting out a vase of Sprite out to the garden when you cut
blooms?  Plunk the cut stem into the Sprite immediately and I can just
about guarantee that even Don Juan will hang around more than just a couple
of days, looking gorgeous and scenting your room.
DO NOT dilute the Sprite.  Yes, 7-Up will work, too.  Something about
carbonation and sugar that roses just love... I've had a Don Juan cut bloom
last up to a week this way.  Mind you, I had to change the Sprite every
day, but it was worth it!

Whew!!  Erica, isn't that pandering?!?!?!

A comforting thought, though... Don Juan, waiting patiently and indolently
and oh so elegantly at every garden shop, just waiting for women to come
swoon over him, fall in love, take him home to put him in their (flower)
beds and tie him up.  What a life!

The possibilities for innuendo in this thread are really amazing...  ;->
