There is something about the sunflower that make it irresistible. It is possibly the most favored flower, after the rose, of course. If I remember correctly, Vincent van Gogh's painting of sunflowers used to be the most expensive painting in the world until its record was broken. As some of my readers may know, I regularly auction my artwork on eBay, and whenever I list a sunflower painting, there is a positive buzz from the first day! Perhaps it's because I usually throw in a couple of bees, too (ha, ha).
