MY FAVORITE FLOWER – THE SUNFLOWER
Do you love sunflowers as much as I do? It is my favorite flower! They just look so bright and cheerful, adding sunshine to any room or landscape. Oh, and sunflowers seeds, YUM!
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the
shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do.” – Helen Keller
Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty, and longevity. Their yellow color symbolizes vitality, intelligence, happiness, and traditionally symbolizes friendship. They are known for being happy flowers, making them perfect to bring joy.
The wild sunflower is native to North America but commercialization of the plant took place in Russia. Native Americans were the first to domesticate the plant into a single headed plant with a variety of seed colors. It is now a cultivated crop in North America.
Isn’t this a nice array of sunflowers? I just love the arrangement mixed with the white daisy and purple agapanthus plants!
During this time of the year I can’t look out the window and see any sunflowers nor can I go pick any to bring them inside to display.
With this arrangement from Commercial Silk Int’l, I don’t have to wait until summer, I can have my sunflowers now! I received these on a chilly and rainy day, just the perfect thing to lift my spirits!
The flowers look so real as well as the greenery. They’re silk so no watering, just dust or wipe with a moist cloth.
They came packed in this large box. Inside the box was another box wrapped in bubble packaging.
After opening the 2nd box, I found the 2 potted arrangements securely wrapped in bubble packaging.
Both pots were securely tied to the box to prevent the arrangements from moving around during shipment.
They came potted in decorative tin containers that measured 15″ long x 7″ wide x 2.75″ tall. The flowers when arranged measures about 15″ tall. So easy to arrange by bending the flowers and greenery to the shape you prefer.
The image below shows the arrangement as soon as it came out of the box but after a bit of arranging, they looked wonderful!
I absolutely love these! I don’t have a green thumb and if we travel then anything I have growing is dry and wilted by the time we come home. With these silk flowers, I don’t have to worry about that any more!
