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. Bicolored Tree Peonies. The Poppies that are unfurling from their shell and then showing their brilliance. A Parrot Tulip with a super curvy neck. Violets. Checkered Fritillaria. White and cream Daffodils. Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin in DC and a rare blossom peeking out of the trunk of its host. There have been many more along the way, this is only a small sampling of the unique beauties I’ve come across.
