A little “Thank You” never hurts..

Sunnies came my way.

Abundance fill you may,

Gratitude spells my day.

Thanking all today,

That is all I have to say.”

Some facts on Sunflowers.

🌻 1: A Symbol of Steadfast Loyalty, Everlasting Faith and Adoration

Even though science has proved that this plant doesn’t actually follow the sun all day, it is still the plant that people most widely associate with this idea.

For this reason and with how it has been seen through the ages, it is always going to be a symbol of unswerving faith, loyalty and dedicated love, devotion and adoration.

🌻 2: A Symbol of Optimism and Happiness

The shape and the color of the sunflower heads and their bright yellow, orange and red petals are symbolic of the sun. This flower represents happiness, radiance and all things that are positive.

In this way, sunflowers are perfect for happy occasions. You can use them for all kinds of joyous events and celebrations such as weddings, engagement parties, baby showers and birthdays.

🌻 3: A Symbol of Longevity

In China, this flower symbolizes longevity or long life. It may be due to the sun which is perceived to have an enduring life even though eventually it will die out.

On a practical note, when these plant stems are cut to make flowers for vases and bouquets, they can last for 2-3 weeks so are quite hardy.

🌻 4: A Symbol of Good Fortune and Good Luck

In dreams, the sunflower is believed to be a very lucky symbol or motif. It is viewed as symbolizing career and employment ambitions, wealth, good fortune and positive opportunities.

This flower is quite the lucky charm for someone who may be beginning on a new career path or starting a job.

Happiness and sunshine 🙂
