The sunflower, a native of North America, is known as the ‘flower of the sun’ and was first domesticated more than 5000 years ago. The bright cheery blossoms that grow toward the light make it a popular cut flower. Sunflowers are also cultivated for their seeds which are eaten as a snack or crushed into oil.

To me, sunflowers suggest the warm, last days of lingering late summer. A bouquet like this helps me hold onto the memories of those languid, bittersweet days of September or early October.
