Summer in Sydney is Waterlily Season
Summer in Sydney means it is Waterlily time. Waterlilies are one of the most beautiful summer flowers you can get. Trick to having them last as long as possible is to keep your vase nice and full of water, right to the top if possible. Waterlilies grow in ponds and their flowers float on the water surface,their hollow stems are filled with the pond water right to the flower base. Having your vase full of water will replicate this and increase the vase life of your flowers. Changing the water daily will also help increase vase life.
I couldn't resist taking some home with me. Even the David Noonan Sculpture seems quite taken by them :-)
