  1. Sunflowers are addicting for their beauty…you have brilliantly captured that beauty here Rosemary!

    I love that you chose to pair a watercolor with the photo I liked best — the one that shows three views of the flower. The buds are more interesting than most people notice.

    I wonder which came first: flower rays, or sun rays? Apparently, they both link back to Latin “radius”, which meant (ta-da!) the spoke of a wheel. Makes sense, no?

    • Rosemary Says:

      When was the wheel invented? I wonder if our early ancestors called them rays before the invention of the wheel!! (I would say the sun came first, then the flowers, then the wheel.)
