This week Ann-Christine challenges me to find perfect patterns and tell us why I think they are perfect.
An answer to an often-asked question, “Are zebras black with white stripes or white with black stripes?” The answer is, “Black with white stripes!” Shave one and you will find black skin beneath. When exploring this fun fact I learned that scientists still have not discovered the reason for their stripes. Not an easy question to solve so it seems. No matter, I still find them perfect.
Giraffe spots are unique. And by the way, their tongues are long so that they can forage on trees that others can’t eat.
This cactus flower will bloom once at night. In the morning it will be done. I learned this from my neighbors, Bob and Bea. I received an urgent call one night and was told to come over quickly. Worried, we rushed over. The cactus was blooming, and they didn’t want us to miss it. I was relieved since these neighbors were elderly. They gave us a cactus we named, Bob and Bea, and it bloomed after many years. That is until a neighborhood squirrel thought this cactus was tasty.
Found on the coast of California, I love the papery look of these colorful flowers.
Lots of other flower patterns some perfect, and some almost. Which one do you like?

Art inspired patterns
Color, reflection, and repetition are all captured in one photo.
That is all I can say about seeing the world and discovering all the perfect patterns that surround us. Do you have any perfect patterns around you?
