I was recently at an event where succulents were put in vases and used as centerpieces. I was very hopeful that I’d be able to snag some of them. But I had to wait until the end of the event when the florist returned, so I could ask permission.
Sure enough, the florist told me they would be thrown away. I was ready – I’d already picked out the ones that I wanted, so when I got the greenlight, I scooped them up and brought them home with me. A good score, if you ask me. I couldn’t stand the thought of them getting tossed in the garbage!
