Flowers  - Flowers are showy organs that contain reproductive parts.  Some people may dispute this, because of so - called weed flowers, but when you look closely at so - called weed flowers you will see they are very beautiful.  The problem is that very few people ever take time to look closely at anything in nature, especially at so - called weed flowers. 
Flowers have showy petals, and in some cases showy bracts.  The Dogwood is the best - known flower that has showy bracts.  Flowers in all colors, and the colors attract many insects that bring the pollen to the flowers.  Some flowers have only male parts while others have only female parts.  Some flowers have both male and female parts.
