Coloring pages with flowers for children and for adults. There will be simple coloring pages as well as very difficult with many elements to paint and they are quite small. We will learn about those that occur in vases and pots as well as field flowers that bloom in the spring and summer on the meadows. They will be small and large, and climb on special ladders. We will make compositions of them and different bouquets, which you can print or paint online.
Coloring Book Flowers
The history of flowers is fascinating, they appeared on Earth, about 130 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period. That's relatively recent in geological time. If the entire history of Earth were compressed into one hour, flowering plants would have existed for only the last 90 seconds. But once they became firmly rooted about 100 million years ago, they rapidly diversified in an explosion of varieties that established most families of flowering plantsat before the first flower appeared. As a food source, flowering plants provide us and the rest of the animal world with food that is the basis of our existence. In the words of Walter Judd, a botanist at the University of Florida, "If it weren't for flowering plants, there would be no us humans."
When and how did the first flowering plants appear? Charles Darwin pondered this question, and paleobotanists are still searching for answers. In the 1990s, discoveries of fossilized flowers in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America provided important clues. As a result, modern paleobotany has experienced a boom unmatched by the explosion of flowers from the Cretaceous period. Now fossil hunters with shovels and microscopes compare their notes with molecular biologists who use genetic sequencing to trace modern plant families back to their origins. These two groups of researchers don't always arrive at the same birthplace, but both camps agree on why this search is important. Therefore, hopefully we will soon determine the exact time of birth of these plants.
Interesting facts about flowers - which are waiting in coloring books
1. flowers are the reproductive structures of flowering plants. When insects or birds arrive to take nectar from a flower, they pollinate it by carrying pollen from one flower to the pistil (the female part of the flower) of another.

4. in the U.S. Nearly 60% of all fresh-cut crops are grown in California.
5. sunflower heads move throughout the day to follow the sun's route from east to west.
6. There are more than 400,000 plants that thrive in the world, but many have yet to be discovered, so the number could be higher.
8. bamboos are flowering plants, but they only bloom every few years.
The 9th most expensive flower ever sold is the Shenzhen Nongke orchid. It took eight years to develop and only blooms once every four to five years, but it sold at auction for $200,000!
10 - Lilies are beautiful, but they are very toxic to cats.
11.The pleasant smell of roses comes from the microscopic scent glands on their petals.
12.The color of a hydrangea depends on the type of soil it grows in, such as its acidity. If the soil is less acidic, it will be pink, and the more acidic, it will be blue!
13. agave is known as a monocarpic plant, meaning that it can remain dormant for years and blooms only once and then dies.
14 Scientists have succeeded in resurrecting a 32,000-year-old Arctic plant in Siberia using seeds buried by an Ice Age squirrel.
The 16th vanilla is delicate, opens for only a few hours at a time, and must be hand-pollinated to produce vanilla beans.
The largest auction of these plants in the world takes place in the Netherlands, in Aalsmer. About 20 million flowers are sold there every day.
18.Some flowering plants release pollen only when they sense a bee buzzing on them.
19 There are about 4000 species of orchids in the world, but 1500 of them are found in Colombia. It is no surprise that the orchid is the national flower of Colombia!
24. many plant species are threatened with extinction: 25% flowering plants are believed to be endangered.
25 National Geographic estimates that some 571 species of flowering plants have become extinct since 1750.
