Cyperus fendlerianus- Fendler’s Sedge thrives in elevations between 5000’ to 7300’. To me, this is one of the most interesting plants on Mount Lemmon. I am inspired by the late Frank Rose in seeing purpose in all things. This Sedge may look ordinary, but it provides such information about what is going on in the environment, even with changing times. It can be a sign of consistency each year it grows. Sometimes in life, we need some ordinary to rely on in the midst of change. Explore Nature for your own well-being. It doesn’t always have to be about identifying plants. Nature can provide therapy.

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.
