Whorled~

Day 37/ 365

Whorled~

The leaves of this bamboo (picked from Siliguri market) are initially rolled in a whorl and as they grow out (one by one), the give rise to spiral (criss-crossing leaf pattern) phyllotaxy..! 

Interesting is botany...Isn't it!!

The sleeping botanist in me loves collecting such unique plants. At times, I wish I was working for a botanical garden like Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew ...!
