sunflowers to seeds

Sunflowers to Seeds . . .Summer in North America.

This is an image of transformation, of change. It's a close up
of the composite flower head (the capitulum) of the much-loved
garden Sunflower. Notice two remarkable things: (1) the Sunflower
is a weave of many smaller flowers woven together in the marvelous
pattern of a double spiral ; (2) from right to left, from white to yellow,
the difference between ripening seeds to flowers still attached
to their seeds-in-becoming.
