If those flowers are supposed to represent the love that one person feels for another, then the last thing you want them to do is wilt. Tom Kasper offers some advice for how to maintain the perennial Valentine's Day gift of flowers.

The three easiest and most impactful things you can do are...
-change the water in the vase every day
-place the flowers out of direct sunlight
-give the stems a fresh cut

These simple steps can lead to additional days of soothing fragrance and visual beauty. Happy Valentine's Day!
