“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair.” Susan Polis Schutz
In summer, it just seems we are more carefree, more apt to drop our guards and have fun. Whether dancing with flowers in our hair in the sunshine or jumping through puddles in a rainstorm – summer brings out our inner vivacity. Maybe it is because of memories of childhood, or long lazy days – either way, there is no doubt we all love the summertime.
In the summer, everything seems bolder, brighter and more exciting – even the flowers. To be sure, the flowers of this season have to have a bit more audacity, after all, they bloom and thrive through sun and heat. Some of the more popular summer flowers include classics like roses, lilies, and hydrangea; as well as more exotic blooms like the gladiolus flower, known for colorful, bright stalks that showcase long, dramatic stems.
One of the most truly emblematic flowers of summer is the sunflower. Even it’s name indicates it’s preference for days spent in the sunshine, as does its penchant for facing the sun during long daylight hours. It’s nearly impossible to remain in a bad mood with these harbingers of happiness on your kitchen window sill. And if you prefer even more color, the bright yellow of the bloom is set off beautifully by the vibrancy of some of our other seasonal favorites. The expert floral artists at Griffin’s love to arrange delicate orchids, elegant dahlias and fiery gerbera daisies for a work of art that will make any impromptu picnic a special occasion.
