Where Has the Sun Gone?

I've got a story to tell you - about something that's been on my mind the last couple of days. That something is a flower. A special flower. I drive past it every day, to and from work. It has no petals - that time is past. Now it has only seeds.

But this flower is one of the biggest I have seen. It must be about 50-60 centimetres across, it would sit on my arms if I held them in a circle. Perhaps with room to spare.

This flower is a sunflower.
