Describe an important plant in your country
You should say:
What it is
Where you see it
What it looks like
Why it is important
Well, when it comes to this topic, the first kind of plant that popped into my mind is the sunflower, they are pretty common so you probably have seen them somewhere. Also, Vincent van Gogh, the famous artist from Holland has a painting of them, which is the magnum opus of his. In his painting, you can feel the energy and passion that sunflowers bring to the people and this beautiful world.
I saw sunflowers for the first time when I was little, maybe like 5 years old in my grandpa’s small garden, he is a big fan of gardening and has all kinds of flowers in his garden, but sunflowers caught my attention because of their size and bright colour. I remember at the end of the day when my parents and I were leaving, I cried so badly because I wanted to take the flowers back home with me.
Sunflowers are very important in China because firstly, Chinese people like their spirit of always looking up to the sun, in our culture, we think they are like people with dream, passion and belief, and we think highly of those people. Secondly, Chinese love to eat sunflower seeds while watching TV, it’s basically like you guys eat pizza while watching game of thrones. Sunflowers are my favourite plants, I hope that in the future, I can have my own small garden so that I can keep some by myself, it would be very beautiful I bet.
