My other long-time favorite flower is a Sunflower. As it turns out, sunflowers are associated with the astrological sign, Leo. Guess who's a Leo? Yep. You guessed it, MOI!
Here's what Teleflora says of this association:
Zodiac Sign: The most dominant, spontaneously creative and extroverted of all the zodiac signs, Leos are also warmhearted, generous and loving. Strong, honorable, self-confident and dignified, those who share this birth sign think and act big – loving the limelight (stealing it, if they have to).
Birth Sign Flower: Choose a floral arrangement for Leos that matches this fire sign’s big hearted personality – like a flower bouquet filled with attention-grabbing sunflowers. With grand proportions, open faces and symbolism rooted in happiness and warmth, sunflowers capture both the Leo’s confidence and strength as well as their unfussy, loving spirit.
Something like this, say, that also has some other faves like calla lilies and gerber daisies in this fantastic burnt orange hue...like sunshine and sunsets:
Now, to finish this all off...let's dream of fall and hillsides that look like sunshine or Tuscany ;)
