The Sunflower is an annual plant native to the Americas that possess a large inflorescence (flowering head). The sunflower got its name from its huge fiery blooms, whose shape and image is often used to depict the sun. The sunflower has a rough, hairy stem, broad, coarsely toothed, rough leaves and circular heads of flowers. The heads consist of 1,000-2,000 individual flowers joined together by a receptacle base.

For more floral images please stop by my portfolio, thank you.

Welcome to my beautiful world….
Scotland has such beautiful scenery and I try to capture those wonderful scenes along my travels. You will very often find me on the moors or soaking up the atmosphere of one of the many Lochs Scotland has to offer.
I also have a love of flowers and have a selection of fine art florals in my portfolio. Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my world….
