Sunflowers are a genus comprising about 70 species of annual and perennial flowering plants in the daisy family Asteraceae. Sunflowers also symbolise worship and faithfulness in various religions because of their resemblance to the sun and symbolise the Sun god, who is associated with spiritual knowledge and desire to seek light and truth as believed by the Incas.
An interesting fact is that each sunflower contains as many as 1,000 to 2,000 seeds that are food for birds. We can also harvest and roast them for a healthy snack.
The behaviour of the sunflower is very interesting. It silently smiles in the eastern direction when the sun rises and keeps turning its head to the west till dusk.
This series of sunflower arrangements of different sizes, texture and shapes are easy DIY at home. All components used are locally available. It’s time to enjoy summer.
