Sunflower season is here and it is one of the most beautiful times of the year. It signifies harvest season is on its way, and expresses the beauty of nature and the lessons learned from it.
Sunflowers are amazing not only for its beauty, but because of some of its unknown astonishing facts. Many people don't realize that the center of the sunflower contains tiny little flowers, some of which contain two thousand little blooms. And each sunflower contains between one to two thousand seeds per plant.
The patterns on the sunflower have deeper spiritual symbolism as it connects to the laws of the spiral and the Fibonacci sequence. Sunflowers always face the sun as it blooms in a process called, "heliotopism."
Nature has its own healing capabilities and in fact, sunflowers absorb toxins. In fact, millions were planted in Japan after the tsunami to soak up toxic waste from the destruction.
It's no wonder that after finding this handmade vintage sunflower apron, I've decided to create a sunflower recipe that is also homemade.
“Sunflowers end up facing the sun, but they go through a lot of dirt to find their way there.”
