Sunflower - from Weed to Seed

Flower: From Bud to Seed

A wild Sunflower, Helianthus annuus, sprang up in my garden. This page displays macro shots of the bud as it grows into a flower and yields seeds. This plant is a member of the Asteraceae, tribe Heliantheae. Sunflower - closeup of flower development

The Flower
Like a hand closed tight...
The hand opens
The hand flat against a windowpane
Now, stretch the hand wide open, so the palm can touch the bottom of a salad bowl.
