I wonder if you do this, too.
When I'm weeding, such as today, and accidentally break off a flower I can't stand to not rescue it from an early fate. So with grubby hands I dig around for a vase and put the poor little thing in it to give it a few more days.
This one is in a tiny, tiny cocoa server about 1 1/2" tall. The little pansy looks worse for wear because I washed the mud from it's face - to smile another day. Diane
