Patterns in Nature.

I've always noticed pattern in nature and cutting open some feijoas started me off seeking them out with my camera.
In trees and grass. This bamboo is in fact a grass.
This may be a pattern in the bark of the Kahikatea or lychen.

The cones and leaves on a Chamaecyparis.

The growth tip of a Lancewood ( pseudopanax ) tree.
Even the varying shapes of a Eucalytpus tree once it is firewood.

I just love the picture of the fire wood and yes certainly a pattern there.

So pretty! Lines, circles...love them all in nature, and in quilts.

I have no idea what feijoas are. Must look them up.

I'm sure your farmer's idea about guinea pigs, by the way, is the sensible one. The vet treatment for two cost £733.22!!!! When you consider that I earn about £1200 net in a month for teaching full time, you can perhaps judge how huge a sum this is. But we're not farmers - especially my fragile SIL isn't. Hmm.
