Problem-never have a vase nearby when cutting bouquets in the perennial garden. I stop what I'm doing, go in the house, rummage around looking. Once I'm back in the garden I set the vase down on uneven ground only to have it tip over!
Solution-bought a set of 4 heavy duty, two prong metal beverage holders! Hooray-problem solved!

Brilliant! I need to search out some of those holders... might be holding a Coke (or something Green Grin! ) more often than a vase, in my case, though!

@plantladylin you're so sweet. Thank you. I will plant my acorns so they turn into mighty oaks.
