Inspiration from nature.

Been looking to nature for inspiration today, to a cauliflower to be precise!  I don't know a lot about fractals but the word immediately springs to mind when looking at this gorgeous geometric pattern.

The term fractal was coined by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975.  The dictionary defines them as a complex geometric pattern exhibiting self-similarity in that small details of its structure viewed at any scale repeat elements of the overall pattern.  Whatever, it's very obvious that nature has her own complex way of creating patterns within patterns and it's hard to believe that this amazing structure has grown in the ground over the summer.  In fact it felt like almost a crime to cook it,  however I did and very good it tasted too, as delicious a cauliflower cheese as I can remember.
