I’ve always thought about working for a flower company. So five months ago, the day after Thanksgiving, I accepted an offer for a short-term freelance gig at ProFlowers. A quick paycheck, free flowers and easy things to write about, right? Nope, way more. Fast forward to today, five months later, I know more about tulips, peonies and succulents than probably your average florist. But most of all, I’ve found that writing about flowers is way harder and more rewarding than you’d think.
