I understand cheap flowers a little more -- those suckers last like they're fake. Feels like forever! Four huge arrangements were starting to feel like they were taking over my apartment though. But I hate to waste. So I pulled all four apart. They're nothing fancy. But how much nicer they look in tiny clusters! And the Carnations are sort of pretty as bursts of color... Just goes to show with a little rearranging or a different point of view in life--old is new, tacky is quaint.
