Flowers are nature’s way of smiling at us. Without them, many plants could not reproduce, and many useful insects would have no way of making a living. Whether you’re a keen gardener or you just enjoy the free gifts nature provides us, there is no avoiding the beauty of flowers. So let’s share that beauty here!
In actual fact, the true flower is just the round bit at the very centre. Those four things looking like petals are in fact modified leaves. Because the flower itself is so unnoticeable (to bees as well as to us!), the plant has to make a 'pretend flower' or the bees just wouldn't come, and the plant could not reproduce 😮
