I am so in love with this bouquet. Sunflowers are some of my absolute favorites and the color combination of purple, green, and yellow make me very happy.
The flowers and vase arrived in a box and I had the enjoyment of arranging them. A little known fact about me – should you ever participate in Sincerely Anna trivia night (it’s a thing) – is that I learned to make flower arrangements in high school.
While the normal firstborn or driven middle-child kids were taking chemistry, I decided to kick back and take the easy 4-year-plan that included Horticulture 101. We ran a flower shop business and managed a greenhouse. There were tests but not a lot of homework. The class allowed more time for extra curricular activities in my schedule. I only listened to my career counselor; she always told me those would work in my favor on college applications.
Wait a minute. Is that a polite way of saying something?
Anyway. Horticulture was actually kinda fun. The business side, the creative side – not the sciency side.
Look! Pretty flowers!
