Opening the new art page in My Botanical Garden may I start with Vincent and his  Sunflowers, as they are so well known, becoming a symbol of our common consciousness.Interpreted so many times, from worst kitsch up to classy reinterpretations, the sunflowers always bear that echo from the hot summer with them.Are sunflowers as plants already a symbol of forgotten summers or is art reinterpreting their symbolism to tie them with our memories of endless summers?In this case I may ask, with all the seriousness, was there first Vincent ore were sunflowers?
