Sacred Snack

I went to the last Farmer's Market of the season Sunday, expecting nothing more than turnips, but instead found the exotic romanesco cauliflower.

I knew instantly that I had stumbled upon some sacred geometry, the golden spiral, or perhaps a fine example of the Fibonacci Series, like a sunflower. Little did I know that I was looking at fractal food

Of course, I bought four (a true bargain at $1 each), took eight hundred photographs and have used my romanescos as the focal points of holiday hors d'oeuvres trays. They shall have to be consumed soon, since they are beginning to emit the unpleasant gases associated with the cabbage family. Dirty shame. I doubt I'll ever find another.

Photo note: as above
