Dear Diary,

This is another flowering plant that beautifies my mother’s courtyard - sunflower. Its dazzling yellow flower is able to brighten up my mood just by glancing at it. Its bright color is infectious in infusing happy mood to almost anyone.

Little that I know that (from Wikipedia):

What is usually called the "flower" on a mature sunflower is actually a "flower head" (also known as a "composite flower") of numerous florets, (small flowers) crowded together. The outer petal-bearing florets are the sterile ray florets and can be yellow, red, orange, or other colors. The florets inside the circular head are called disc florets, which mature into seeds. The flower petals within the sunflower's cluster are usually in a spiral pattern.

Sunflower seeds are not only seeds that can be used to grow sunflower plant but they can also be eaten as snacks (kuaci). Apart from that, they can also be used in cooking and salads. Furthermore, sunflower seeds are also used as bird seeds.
