It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince)

Yesterday I found a package called circular and I could not suppress to do this:

rose

Make your own floweRs:

require(circular)
for (i in 1:8)
{
  rose.diag(circular(runif(5000, 0, 2*pi)), 
            bins = (25-round(abs(jitter(0, amount=2*i)))), 
            axes=FALSE,
            border=rgb(255,50+204*((i-1)/8),50+204*((i-1)/8), alpha=255, max=255),
            ticks = FALSE,
            col=rgb(250,0+204*((i-1)/8),0+204*((i-1)/8), alpha=255, max=255), 
            control.circle=circle.control(lty=0), 
            shrink=0.22+(i-1)*(2-0.22)/8)
  par(new=TRUE)  
}
for (i in 1:150)
  {
  q = runif(1)*pi*2
  r = sqrt(runif(1))
  x = (0.18*r)* cos(q)
  y = (0.18*r)* sin(q)
  points(x, y, 
         col = rgb(255 ,sample(80:120, 1), 0, alpha= 95, max=255),
         bg = rgb(255 ,sample(100:200, 1), 0, alpha= 95, max=255), pch=21, cex=2)
  }
