The only think wrong with them was that they had a decided curve to the stem.
When I got my bunch home and popped them in a jug they looked ridiculous, even when I cut the stems short they just flopped out of the jug in a very peculiar manner.
Luckily inspiration struck and I trotted off to the herb garden where I picked a big bunch of mint
Once the flowers were tucked around the edge of the mint it looked fine.
The colours of the mint even echo those of the flowers.
