Dear friends, today i want to share with you this blog about my favorite flower, Sunflower.
Sunflowers originated in the Americas in 1000B.C., where for centuries they were cultivated as a valuable food source. Evidence suggest that the plant was cultivated by indian in presend day Arizona and New Mexico about 3000 BC.
Sunflowers become very popular as a cultivated plant in the 18th century. The plant was initially used as on ornamental but by 1769 literature mentions sunflower cultivated by oil production.
The use of sunflower images as religious symbols has also been documented in some native societies. With the European exploration of the New World, the sunflower was brought to new areas, and the flower's popularity eventually spread as the rest of the world began to appreciate its beauty and sustenance. Artists throughout history have appreciated the sunflower's unique splendor, and those of the Impressionist era were especially fixated on the flower.
Today, sunflowers continue to provide a resource for commonly used seeds and oil, but they have also become recognized as a floral symbol of great significance.
Sunflowers are an all-time garden favourite. They are very easy to grow, making this an ideal garden project for the very young to learn about growing plants. They are hardy semi-annual plants and provided you have a spot with plenty of sunshine, growing your very own should be a cinch.
"Every friend is to the other a sun, and a sunflower also. He attracts and follows."
"Flower have an expression of countenance as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock."
"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do."
"Never look directly at the sun. Instead, look at the sunflower."
