In French or English, Fleur du Soleil or Sunflower says “summer” like no other flower!
Grown for beauty as well as harvested for seed, sunflowers symbolize the sun, conveying warmth, happiness, adoration and longevity.
These cheery flowers never fail to make me smile with their sunny faces.
You may have noticed I have lots of watering can love.
I harvested a Fleur du Soleil watering can on a trip to the NC mountains at the end of summer last year. It’s been sitting in a corner of my Potting Shed waiting for some blooms and its day in the sun!
Sunflower plates were blooming on the aisles of HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago.
And are paired with sunflower bowls, picked from Pottery Barn several years ago, from a picnic on the porch, here.
