Blog Swap: Young & Crafty

Hello She Wears Flowers readers! I am so happy to be guest posting here today!
My name is Hannah and I blog over at Young and Crafty. I started my blog in July and have loved showing the things I've created and the transformation the hubs and I have done to our home.

Here are a few of my all time favorites!

If you're looking for a fun link party, I host one starting at 8 every Friday night!


It has truly been an honor to guest post here at She Wears Flowers! I would love for you to swing by and check me out sometime at Young and Crafty!

A stereotypical flower consists of four kinds of structures attached to the tip of a short stalk. Each of these kinds of parts is arranged in a whorl on the receptacle. The four main whorls (starting from the base of the flower or lowest node and working upwards) are as follows:

* Calyx: the outermost whorl consisting of units called sepals; these are typically green and enclose the rest of the flower in the bud stage, however, they can be absent or prominent and petal-like in some species.
* Corolla: the next whorl toward the apex, composed of units called petals, which are typically thin, soft and colored to attract animals that help the process of pollination.
* Androecium (from Greek andros oikia: man's house): the next whorl (sometimes multiplied into several whorls), consisting of units called stamens. Stamens consist of two parts: a stalk called a filament, topped by an anther where pollen is produced by meiosis and eventually dispersed.
* Gynoecium (from Greek gynaikos oikia: woman's house): the innermost whorl of a flower, consisting of one or more units called carpels.
