Uncommon Blooms

Daffodils are blooming here in New York City. It is only February 28th, a very early sign of spring indeed. I thought I’d share some of the rare finds I’ve come across in my years as a florist. It seems I’m most drawn to the uncommon and unique, the blooms that aren’t found everyday. The poppys that are unfurling from their shell and then showing their brilliance. A parrot tulip with a super curvy neck. Violets. Muscari. Checkered fritillaria. White and cream daffodils. Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin in DC and a rare blossom peeking out of the trunk of it’s host. There have been many more along the way, this is only a small sampling of the unique beauties I’ve met. And the most uncommon of all, daffodils blooming in February.
