Floral Fantasy:Sunflowers

People love sunflowers.  This is something that I have learned over the years I have been a floral designer. They also love gerbera daisies.  They seem to be two of the favourite flowers that people will request in an arrangement.

I love sunflowers now, not so much the rest of the year.  For me, and for a lot of floral designers you are always ahead of the season.  Commercially grown flowers are aprox one month in advance of Mother Nature and our designs reflect this.  By the time one season arrives naturally, I am ready to move on to the next.

We have been purchasing a lot of the autumn flowers at the shop lately, sunflowers, dahlias, sedums, celosia etc and this put me in the mood to make this arrangement.
