Sesame Flowers/芝麻花/참깨꽃

Dear friends, I believe that you are very familiar with the sesame seeds, sesame oil ! Have you ever seen the flowers of sesame. Share with you this picture which I took at the weekend farm in Seongnam, Korea.
Sesame is an annual plant growing 50 to 100 cm (1.6 to 3.3 ft) tall, with opposite leaves 4 to 14 cm (1.6 to 5.5 in) long with an entire margin; they are broad lanceolate, to 5 cm (2 in) broad, at the base of the plant, narrowing to just 1 cm (0.4 in) broad on the flowering stem. The flowers are yellow, tubular, 3 to 5 cm (1.2 to 2.0 in) long, with a four-lobed mouth. The flowers may vary in colour, with some being white, blue, or purple.(source:wikipedia)

亲爱的朋友们,我深信您对麻油,芝麻都非常的熟悉 ! 您可曾见过芝麻花 ? 与您分享我在位于城南周末农场所拍摄的照片。
