Sunflowers

Despite his brilliance, not even van Gogh’s paintbrush could fully do justice to Helianthus annuus, the common sunflower.

When their sweet scent reach your nostrils as you stare into an intricate depth of a spiraling mandala consisting of a web of hundreds of florets you may understand why not only van Gogh but a huge variety of insects are also hopelessly mesmerized by its beauty and drunken by it sweet pollen displaying the same devotion as the sunflowers themselves as they dutifully turn to the sun and bow their heads in unison.

Besides being simply beautiful, the many seeds they provide are rich in protein and a natural source of iron.
