Displaying freshly cut flowers from your garden livens up your home, but it makes you sad to see them droop after a few days.  You can make them last longer by adding a few drops of vodka (about a teaspoon) to the vase water.  The alcohol inhibits the production of ethylene, a molecule that accelerates aging in plants.  Your flowers will stay and look fresh longer.
