Narcissus Cheerfulness:┬áThe blooms of ‘Cheerfulness‘ feature creamy white petals sheltering light yellow centers.

It’s always easier to choose flowers for the orders we already received because I know what we need, but many times, I find myself guessing and assuming what kind of flowers our customers would like this week. Colors, types, textures, and so on. I keep asking myself “should I buy this or that” questions, then I came to this conclusion: Get the flowers that are talking to you!

I was at a flower wholesaler yesterday to get some flowers and found a little dainty darling flower, Narcissus Cheerful. So cute and lovely, commonly used for the bridal/attendants’ bouquets. I was looking at them and hesitating to pick them up. “It’s still too cold this week for our customers to be looking for this spring time flower so let’s buy it in a couple of weeks,” I thought. So I picked other flowers and went to the check out table and to my surprise, I was standing in front of Cheerful again! I felt like they were talking to me. I couldn’t leave them behind, so they came with me and now are in our floral cooler, smiling. I wondered who, if anyone, will bring these little ones back with them to their homes.

A customer came in this morning, looking for some flowers for her daughter who just had twin baby girls. Guess what she liked? Cheerful.

She wanted this small, creamy, light yellowish flowers with peach sweetheart roses and purple Anemones in the arrangement. I shared my little story with the customer and she was smiling and saying, “Someone knew I was coming!”

Yes, I knew someone would love this flower, but was wondering who and which occasion would be for. This was all meant for new born twin baby girls!

Look at the flowers close enough to hear.

They are talking, indeed!
