Fractal Romanesque broccoli

It's amazing the beauty that I find in our humble vegie garden... my old maths teacher would be very pleased with my current observation about our Romanesque Broccoli we have growing. Its is exquisitely symmetrical, sporting dozens of knobbly florets, each a miniature version of the entire structure, and each built from even smaller copies of the whole its just so cool. I showed my boyfriend Christopher and he had just one simple word... Fractals.

Cool photo. I thought you may like this poem about fractals

Big fleas have little fleas
on their backs to bite them,
and little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so ad infinitum.
