Beginning with a Circle

While I ponder this week’s WP Photo Challenge, I’ll begin with a circle of green I came across in S’s garden the other day.

Just a miracle of nature – the unfurling tip of a Bird’s Nest Fern (Asplenium).

        • At least they got that far! I fear that though I received a great education – and the few of us who knew what we wanted to do with our lives went on to have stellar careers – I was among the last of the generations of women who were really just expected to do a bit of this or that till marriage and child-rearing. Ooops … I must have fallen through the cracks!

  3. This reminded me so much of the theories about the perfection of the pattern of growth and the Fibonacci sequences, which predict things like the way snailshells form a perfect curve, that I had to go back and do a little bit of reading…… and then entirely coincidentally a friend made a comment about a photo I had taken referring to the Golden Section, and there I was back with Fibonacci. I know it doesn’t work for everyone, but something about the fact that there is a discernible mathematical pattern to nature fills me with wonder.

    • Ah … Fibonacci sequences and the like – way, way out of my league! My ‘oldest’ friend in Switzerland is mad for them and picks numbers up everywhere we go – it’s beyond me, Rowena!

      But I do know of that perfect snail’s shell shape – and understand what you mean about the wonder of nature and mathematical patterns. Did you see the post of the green cauliflower that’s pure fractals? Beautiful … :)
