Beautiful flowers, March 2013
When I arrived to live in Provence I became fascinated by sunflowers. Not the ones that shine and show off their beauty proudly for a few weeks during the summer and make everybody stop and take photos. No, the other ones! The ones that nobody stops to picture. The ones who go through the seasons, all types of weather with stillness and maturity. The ones who stand up gracefuly in the middle of the field when everybody has already forgotten about them. Yet they are so present.
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is an annual plant native to the Americas. It possesses a large inflorescence (flowering head), and its name is derived from the flower's shape and image, which is often used to depict the sun. The plant has a rough, hairy stem, broad, coarsely toothed, rough leaves and circular heads of flowers. The heads consist of many individual flowers which mature into seeds, often in the hundreds, on a receptacle base. From the Americas, sunflower seeds were brought to Europe in the 16th century, where, along with sunflower oil, they became a widespread cooking ingredient. Leaves of the sunflower can be used as cattle feed, while the stems contain a fibre which may be used in paper production.
