The giant yellow “petals” on a sunflower are actually giant yellow leaves

The sunflower is not a flower! 🌻 Its petals are actually leaves... 
It happens that the leaves disguise themselves as yellow to attract pollinators. Now, look inside the flower more closely. Look into what you once thought was the flower and are actually leaves, and you will see the flowers. Many... Many... Beautiful and delicate in an alignment beyond harmonic (the geometry of nature). What you thought was a flower, is actually an outline that holds hundreds and hundreds of flowers... 
And if we look at it with the eyes of gardeners, we will realize that each little flower holds within itself, in this golden dust, countless fields of sunflowers. 
In biology, this is called an infloration. 🌻
