Flower of the Day: Sunflower clusters, October 25, 2018

I never knew sunflowers grew in a bunch like this around a stem. Before realizing this, my eyes mainly gravitated towards the largest, bright bloom.

My perspective of these giant blooms was limited. The only sunflowers I’ve regularly encountered were the single long stems sold at grocery stores or flower shops. Also, my kids and I once planted a sunflower seed and only one flower bloomed.

Then one day, the top flower was snapped off leaving only a green stem sticking out of the pot. The culprit I surmise was a mischevious squirrel.

Untamed sunflowers in nature are wildly free and beautiful.
