Open Thread: Sunflowers

Hosted by a sunflower
Fun fact: did you know that sunflowers can absorb radioactive cesium from the soil they grow in?  They've been used this way to help clean up after Chernobyl.  For this reason, the sunflower has become a symbol for nuclear disarmament.

Also Van Gogh painted them and they are very pretty thank you.

Open thread!  Do you know any other fun or interesting facts about sunflowers?  How about fun or interesting facts in general?  Do you like sunflowers, and if not, what do you like better?

Wednesday Reminder!  Open threads are meant to be fun, chatty places to discuss anything that doesn’t “fit” into a deconstruction or other regular thread.  This can be something totally off-the-wall and random, or it can be something interesting that a deconstruction prompted you to think of, but which would be derailing to get into in the deconstruction thread.  When in doubt, move it over here - that’s what it’s for!  

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
