Beautiful, bright, yellow flower
of dry areas of the west.
composed of numerous tiny florets
put together and forming the illusion of a ring of petals.
Plant with large, deep, thick taproot
used by Native Americans for food;
baked and steamed roots
immature flower stems peeled
dried roots as coffee substitute
Sunshine of the desert.
I love sunflowers, but usually associate them with my time in Kansas. Great picture.ReplyDelete
