No flower lifts the spirits quite like a sunflower can. Bright and cheery, sunflowers originated in the Americas in 1000 B.C. The sunflower’s petals have been likened to the bright yellow rays of sunshine, which evoke feelings of warmth and happiness in our collective consciousness. In addition, the sunflower is often associated with adoration and longevity. Taking all these facts into consideration, what better motif for an occasion celebrating the anniversary of a significant person’s birth? Three muted green tiers, each edged with a braid of interwoven ribbons, form the backdrop for this plethora of large sunflowers that bring a golden glow to this work. Each sunflower is a reminder of the sun, itself, and “Sunflowers Galore” hints of promises of good things to come.
