Who can grow such wonderful examples of Romanesco broccoli? Not me for sure, but I wish I could!

  1. Gorgeous images, love the tree of life tatoo design, am I being stupid to ask what it is?

    • The tree of life design is pretty universal symbol of the interconnectivity of all things, but I found this one when I was researching fractal patterns. I love its simplicity and elegance. There are some nice celtic jewellery designs of the tree of life too. The broccoli is an example of fractal patterns as well.

    • Definitely. The funny thing I found taking photos though was that the florets are rounded like cauliflower, rather than pointed (which is the impression that they give – to my at least)
