The Secret Life of Flowers: What Does a Sunflower Symbolize

What does a sunflower symbolize? I’ve always hoped that I wasn’t the only one whose mind wandered to the scene in Shrek, where he gives Donkey the ‘ogres are like onions’ analogy in the middle of a sunflower field. Not only an iconic moment in movie history but also the first time I recognized a sunflower as, well, a flower (go easy, I was six). I also remember it being my mom’s favorite flower for many years. Which consequently turned into her obsession with giving my sister and I, you guessed it, sunflower seeds as a snack. 

I still enjoy sunflower seeds in my adult life, but maybe because I’m no longer receiving bowls of it every other day. Harvesting sunflower seeds is actually way easier than I thought, and I’m excited to share the news with anyone who will listen. Of course, before we bear fruit (seeds) from this god-like flower, we should know where it comes from. Read below as I tell you all I’ve learned about sunflowers and how to harvest and roast your own sunflower seeds.

Grandma’s Flower Garden: Flowers Your Grandparents Will Cherish This Grandparent’s Day

In my younger years, I would often spend weeks upon weeks at my grandparent’s house, anticipating homemade donuts, shopping mall outings, and, to my mom’s dismay, gaining in-depth knowledge about my grandfather’s tobacco pipe (for the record, I never smoked it!) To me, my grandparents are the 8th wonder of the world, and just like you would a flower, they nurtured me into the kind, loving, and slightly neurotic, adult I am today. 

To be honest, Grandparents Day does ring a bell, but I’ve never really known much about it, let alone celebrated it. But, considering how much I adore my grandparents, I’m definitely glad I did some digging. If you’ve clicked on this article, I’m sure you feel the same about your golden oldies. Read below as I tell you more about Grandparents Day and how you can celebrate with flowers with the help of Russian Flora.
