The Life Cycle of a Flower

There are three steps to the life cycle of a flower. At first, the seed grows inside the flower. When the flower blooms, the seed pops out of the flower. After the seed pops out of the flower, the wind blows the seed to another place. Then the flower grows and blooms. After the flower blooms another seed grows inside the flower again.

The Different Parts of a Flower

Some of the different parts of a flower are the egg, petals, and the stem. The egg is an inside part of the flower. If there was no seed, then another flower would not grow. The petals are important because they are what makes the flower smell good. The petals are also soft. The stem is the bottom part of the flower. The stem is also a way to tell if the flower is dead or in good shape. If the stem is brown, that means that the flower is dead. If the stem is green, that means that the flower is in good shape. As you can see, the three main parts of a flower are very important because they help keep the flower in good shape.
