Ratibida columnifera-Mexican Hat is also part of the Asteraceae family. These flowers are really hard to miss . Like all flowers, they need to be left alone and only admired with our eyes and cameras. When fires go to the woods, it depletes food sources for our pollinators as well. This is a Summer to replenish what was taken away. Go take your Nature walks and only take pictures. Enjoy Mother Nature and make memories.

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.
