A few weeks ago I read about how
you can pick Peony buds, wrap them in newspaper
and keep them in the fridge for up to two weeks!!!
This was mentioned on a comment from
We had an event coming up for which I wanted to use
some of these flowers, so I decided to
give this a try.
|June 16 - picked some buds.|
|Wrapped and refrigerated - so nice to have the garage fridge for this!|
|June 20 - unwrapped and put into water.|
|June 22 - beautiful and fragrant.|
|June 24 - fully opened!|
This process totally amazed me.
It was so wonderful to see how even the leaves
came back to life after just a few hours
of being rehydrated!
I wonder ... could I have kept them this way for another week?
Next time I'll have to try, but it will have to wait till next year
since all the Peonies have bloomed and are past their prime
as a result of our hot and humid weather these last few days!
That was fun ....
Till next time ..... enjoying the scents and beauty of these lovely flowers that have been growing here on this farm for more than 5 decades!!
