Please have a peek at this beauty:

The buds on this veggie form an equiangular logarithmic spiral. That is a spiral such that the radials lines cut the spiral at equal angles at every point.

For those of you who like logarithmic spirals look at the figures on this Wiki page. You will notice that the arms of Spiral Galaxies are logarithmic spirals. They occur in nature quite a bit.

Just noticed this - this will be the third serving. Beautiful indeed, but sorry, not too beautiful to eat. Yum, yum, pass the bechamel!
