1. Blot cucumber rounds on a paper towel to remove moisture. 2. Spread a generous layer of cream cheese on each cucumber round. 3. Arrange dried fruit pieces around the edge of the cucumber, pressing them into the cream cheese. These are the "petals." 4. Place sunflower seeds between the dried-fruit petals to make smaller petals. 5. Press half a grape into the center of each "flower." 6. Chill and serve.
