Sunflowers just make you smile…

2007 09 14 023 edit

…doesn’t get any simpler than this!

Couple of notes on sunflowers: If you buy sunflowers when the flower is fully open, but the center disc is tight and not showing any pollen, they should last 6 to 12 days.The sunflowers above are several days old and the centers are beginning to open. Recutting the stems and changing the vase water every other day will help extend the life of the arrangement. One more thing…I always use a floral preservative in the water.

Hey, it’s Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend.
