a spiral in the hand

is worth …..   a good look !    i am fairly sure this is a rex begonia.  it sure looks that way to me.  it is also spiraling.  the leaf does not so much end as fade into a smaller still growing spiral segment.  which if you are familiar with rex begonias each little piece of a leaf and vein is capable of becoming a new plant.  now let’s get back to that spiral and the leaf pattern. ain’t it just amazing ? ! ? !  oh and these are still from the garden we visited !  and if anyone asks just pretend this was not a math lesson.  three images.
