Later: I took a nap somewhere along the line.
Mom and Dad came home from church with a bouquet. Dad put it in the raised bed with no water, except that he pulled a long-stemmed red rose out and stuck it in one of my shorter vases.
I went out to the yard in the early evening and worked in the yard some, and eventually rescued the bouquet. I recut the flower stems. I put the long-stemmed rose, a sunflower, and a stalk of white lilies in my tall vase. I put a short-stemmed red rose in the shorter vase. I cut a stalk of mostly open double tiger lilies and put that in a relatively taller vase with the purple liatris. I left the gerbera daisies and yellow daisies and the rest of the flowers on the porch, in a container with water.
I think the yard work I was doing was mostly weeding.
