Cosmos parviflorus - Cosmos. It is August and this is the time where you don’t need to look at up to see the Cosmos, but down below. Cosmos parviflorus are blooming right now and are Nature’s little delight. The rains on the mountain have certainly helped more of these grow everywhere I look. These have been known to bloom until October between the 5,600’ to 8,200’ feet in elevation. Cosmos remind me that no matter how little, or tiny they are perceived to be, they are as significant as the stars above on this rich Earth.

I am not the first, nor the last of expressing and sharing the beauty of mathematics in Nature. What I will share in this blog are thoughts, experiences, and lessons learned to validate life, both human and botanical, living mathematically.
