This delightful (and stunningly beautiful) time lapse of a sunflower head was filmed on Nikon D300 with 55mm macro Nikkor lens studio flash over six days with 1 frame every 8 minutes. Filmed by Neil Bromhall. The music is 'Simplicity' by Paul Mottram.
Is it the magnificent heights these plants can attain? Is it just the pleasing color and shape that evokes the warmth of the sun?
Regardless, sunflowers can be used for an entire decorating theme, as a focus in one room, or as accents that add warmth and life here and there throughout your rustic home.
Whether you choose to grow them or not (and I love growing them!), adding sunflower art, sunflower wallpaper, and other sunflower decorations such as wall art, pillows, hand painted vases, lamps, children's furniture, hand towels, rugs and more, is a great way to bring on a smile (inner or otherwise). The options are vast.
Did you know there is evidence that sunflowers have been cultivated since at least 2600 BC in Mexico?
They can grow to tremendous heights... with reports of plants up to 40' (12m), although the average is 8' to 12' (2.5 to 3.5 m).
And we invite you to send us pictures of your sunflowers - in your home or your garden! Go ahead and brag about the height your sunflowers attained, or show site visitors how you have used them to decorate your home.
