The Beauty of Plants

There are many wonders of a flowering plant, but let's just review the basics. Flowering plants reproduce seeds by carrying pollen from the stamen of one flower to the pistil of another flower. They also reproduce by pollination then fertilization. This is possible because of the bees. Bees carry the pollen to the different flowers by brushing against the anthers of one flower then flying to another flower so that the pistil can collect a pollen grain. Then the grain grows a thin tube that travels down the pistil until it meets an ovule where it forms a new seed.
