I'm always in awe of nature's patterns. Just look at the complexity of this thistle bud. 

Bud of the thistle Carduus nutans

Nature just does this, while man has to use all science's weapons to try and measure and understand the patterns. Mathematics, Physics, Biology. We like to organise and catalogue nature.

I'm very taken with the colours of the thistle, but prefer it in the countryside away from my garden

    1. Quite so Linda, and there is also Fermat's spiral. I started looking at the geometry but decided to stick with just enjoying them :)
