The Anemone meaning wind flower, which signifies that the wind that blows the petal open will also, eventually, blow the dead petals away; are perennial herbs with an underground rootstock, and radical, more or less deeply cut leaves. The elongated flower stem bears one or several, white, red, blue or rarely yellow flowers. There is an involucre of three leaflets below each flower. The fruits often bear long hairy styles, which aid their distribution by the wind. They produce cup-shaped yellowish, white, purple, violet, or red Anemone flowers.
Each stamen generally has a stalk called the filament (from Latin filum, meaning "thread"), and, on top of the filament, an anther (from Ancient Greek anthera, feminine of antheros "flowery," from anthos "flower"), and pollen sacs, called microsporangia. The development of the microsporangia and the contained haploid gametophytes, (called pollen grains) is closely comparable with that of the microsporangia in gymnosperms or heterosporous ferns. The pollen is set free by the opening (dehiscence) of the anther, generally by means of longitudinal slits, but sometimes by pores, as in the heath family (Ericaceae), or by valves, as in the barberry family (Berberidaceae). It is then dropped, or carried by some external agent — wind, water or some member of the animal kingdom — onto the receptive surface of the carpel of the same or another flower, which is thus pollinated. It is the part that contains the sperm
"A Brief History of Sugar." A Brief History. 11 Oct 2008 <http://www.irish- sugar.ie/noframes/nf-pages/nf-hist/nf-hist.htm#productn> Sugar cane is a member of the grass family. The sugar cane has hollow stalks filled with a sweet juice or sap from which sugar can be extracted and can grow to 15 feet tall. It grows best in very warm climates and is ready to harvest after 10 to 20 months.
They grow to about three feet tall with long thin light green leaves that have a sharp apex (point) at the end. Numerous drooping bell shaped flowers are found on a Yucca plant with each one holding a hardened capsule full of seeds; these are dispersed by the wind. Wind dispersal is not the only way for the Yucca to reproduce; they also have a unique rhizomatous
If the painting were to be cut in half we would be able to see approximately the same amount of lilies on one side as well as the other. This would also be true for the young native girl, the way her feet are positioned and the extension of her arms allows to see how symmetrical the painting is. The painting also has many organic lines and shapes; the massive flowers have curved lines and are two-dimensional. On the other hand the stems of the lilies have vertical lines, the vertical lines make our eyes look up at the large lilies. On the other hand the scale and proportion of the lilies are not accurate to reality.
