Most people know these flowers as flowers that follow the sun as it passes across the sky. Even though most flowers grow towards the sun, it seems that only sunflowers have the mobility to repeat the cycle each day. Another amazing fact about them is that they richly produce food for birds offering it throughout the season of scarcity – the winter. Nature is truly amazing and inspiring to artists on many levels. I love sunflowers for their warmth and their majestic appeal.
