A while back Dr James Grime planted a sunflower in my backyard.
He was trying to raise awareness for the Turing's Sunflower project.
Well I'm pleased to report the potted sunflower is all grown up.
Slight problem though. We counted the seed spirals which supposedly should match with Fibonacci numbers.
In one direction got a match (34) but in the other direction we seem one short (54).
The seeds are notoriously hard to count though!
Have we got it wrong?
I've put a higher res version of the pic on Flickr.
