At this time of year, with the Echinacea or Coneflowers coming into bloom, the presence of spiral patterns in flowers becomes really obvious. Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician from Pisa first described these spirals to the western world as early as 1202. I don't pretend to understand the mathematics, but the spiral patterns are fascinating.

Spirals in Flowers
Now I really could impress you if I could express all those spirals in numbers and equations, but that's way beyond me, in fact it's in a different universe! I just like the pretty patterns. And thanks to Mrs. F.G. for suggesting this topic.
A quick trip to emerg yesterday, just another skin infection, a constant hazard if you're paralyzed. But the remarkable part was that I got there, was brought in immediately, transferred myself to the examining bed, and welcomed the doctor all in 15 minutes! I was out of there with prescriptions in hand in less than an hour and a half - oh the joys of having a small town hospital about 3 blocks away!
