My love for babys breath started years ago, somewhat by accident. An impromptu decision to add flowers to my grocery store purchase left me disappointed because there were only wilted options available. With the exception of babys breath, of course. "These will do," I thought, and threw them into my basket.
They lasted weeks. As in 2 - 3 weeks. For those that frequently purchase flowers, you know that this is a tough feat to accomplish. Another bonus? They filled every room with a sweet, light, delicate scent. Again, for weeks. Plus, they required minimal maintenance. No switching out water every other day, no gooey substance when cleaning out the vases that held them. Just easy, tender, pretty touches that added a little charm to every room they were in.
Since that serendipitous first meeting, they've my go to flower of choice for decor. They're great as filler flowers or on their own - versatility at its finest. Which is always a breath of fresh air.
