Why do flowers have sepals?

The sepals of a flower protect it while it is in bud. The flower is really a kind of shoot,in which the leaves have been altered so that they can take on the task of producing seeds.Both the sepals and the petals are attached at their bases to the "receptacle",the swollen and of the flower-stalk,which looks like a cone in the middle of the flower.
