Sunflower Rhapsody

Ballet Girls Sunflower Rhapsody“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It is what the sunflowers do.”

- Helen Keller

I love sunflowers, they makes me happy. Looking at their big faces they seems like smiling at you. They are always facing the sun. You can imagine that every morning they greet the sun with their big smiles, welcoming the beginning of the day and getting ready to give it a good start. It always reminds me to carry a good mood with me every morning and always looking at the bright side of things.

I have also find out  some interesting facts about sunflower:

  •  The scientific name of sunflower is “Helianthus”, meaning also “sunflower”. In Latin, “Helio”=”Sun” and “Antho”=”Flower”. Therefore, “Sun”+”Flower”=”Sunflower”. (Looks like some sort of algebraic formula.^_^V)
  • A sunflower is not one flower. It is actually about two thousands of tiny flowers growing together.
  • Sunflower can grow very tall and the flower can be very big. It can grow up to 20 feet high and its head can be more than 2 feet wide.
  • Sunflower is good bee plant and usually covered with bees in summer.
  • Sunflower is the national flower of Russia.
It is amazing, isn’t it?
