Choosing Sunflowers...Nailed It!

I bought some sunflowers recently and learned
a lesson.
 I picked a bunch that looked like they hadn't
opened all the way yet. I had to reach into
the very center of the floral display to reach
them...on my tiptoes!
 I mistakenly thought sunflowers, like rose buds,
would open later...yeah, go ahead, you can laugh at me!
 Turns out you should buy them wide open to
get fresh ones. This bouquet faded fast!

At least the colors were very pretty.

Thanks for dropping by!



  1. They still look pretty.. Have a wonderful Saturday with love Janice

  2. I didn't know that either. Still very pretty and I love the sunflowers in the old pot. That's perfect!

  3. Thank you for the 'giggle' today. They still look colorful. I was nice and didn't say shriveled LOL....hey you didn't know so stick to that story. Hugs! ;-) Ya know I'm teas'in right?

  4. Good try, good try. Am I the only one who hates sunflowers and thinks they look like weeds?

  5. Thanks for the tip on sunflowers...I had no idea either! They are still beautiful though.

  6. Hmm, that is interesting about the sunflowers! I see lots of people walking by with bunches just like yours at the farmers' market I am a vendor at. I wonder if they end up being disappointed too?
