Here is an idea to make a quick arrangement without making a special trip to the store:
Grab some limes, cuties, etc. put a stick or skewer through them.
Cut skewer/stick at various heights.
Place them into the tubes with water (as it helps keep limes fresh). Then clip
pansies (mine came from my flower bed)
Stabilize their delicate stems with a skewer and scotch tape -
Make sure the stem is getting water from the tube.
The limes let off a great sent and the pansies stay perky from drinking up the water in the tubes for days.
