Vintage Sunflower

Sunflowers have a special place in my heart.  They always take me back to my grandfather’s Illinois garden.  As children, my brother and I loved to wander the tidy paths in this magical place with the giant, majestic sunflowers that floated over our heads.  They were truly the stars of the garden. Do you have a sentimental flower?

A Sunny Bouquet V


Yet another bouquet picked from the garden of my imagination.  This floral was inspired by a severe case of spring fever during the gray, dreary days of winter.  Those days seem to be a thing of the past now here in metro Atlanta.  I drove though the charming downtown area of our city earlier, and noticed the flowering trees have all slipped into their colorful gowns seemingly overnight. Wishing you a beautiful day!
