As winter is starting to come to a close and things start turning from winter to spring, why not start that transition in your home, with a little sunshine & bring a bundle of sunflowers home with you. This is the beginning of the season for sunflowers, when your local flower & grocery stores will start to carry these beautiful “HAPPY” flowers.
The important thing with keeping Sunflowers “healthy” in your home is to make sure you cut the stems at a sharp angle and put them in water as soon as you can , they are a VERY thirsty flower. To prolong their vase life , as you continue to enjoy their beauty , once you see the water in the vase become a little hazy , refresh the water.
As for me, I LOVE the moment when sunflowers, the size of appetizer/ dessert plates, start becoming available. These happy flowers are my favorite flower out there and are so affordable , $5-$8 for 10-12 stems. So start making your home HAUTE with sunflowers and bring that sunshine and happiness into your home!
