      That’s a lovely name for it. Is it your own name or one used where you are? 🙂

        There is a book I just read called The Ancient Secret of The Flower of by Drunvalo Melchizedek. In it he discusses these sacred geometries and the pattern called the flower of life. Also check out does a great summary of his work using animation. Nature speaks to us in many ways. Just beautiful. Thank you for the picture.

    That’s a vegetable? I would’ve guessed an alien habitat module. I don’t know that I could eat that. Great photo.

    Your beautiful romanesque cauliflower is a wonderful example of a Mandelbrot function in fractal geometry. Here is a link to an article giving a rough idea of the work of Benoit Mandelbrot.
    Also, If you run a search on Mandelbrot functions, you will find some brilliant videos on these.
