Savor the nut, or is it a seed I mean,
favored by baseball, toasted by chef, salted, roasted,
eaten by many!
Fields of rising flowers, pushing through the ground,
searching for the rays of eternal light, power, life.

landscape alive with nourishing pods, touching air,
bursting with flavor,

every day …turning to sol.
Native to the Central Americas,
domesticated in Mesoamerica by 2600 BC,
Aztecs, Incas, Pizzaro’s, and Peruvians.
Spain found me in the 16th century, and by the 18th Europe knew too!
Floret seed pattern in mathematical model form is expressed in polar coordinates where θ is the angle, r is the radius or distance from the center, and n is the index number of the floret and c is a constant scaling factor.
Can I just have me some sunflower seeds please?
