Mother Nature's Artistry

This is the inner networking of a papaya plant.  The trunk froze and the outer layer of the stem sloughed off, leaving behind this intricate pattern.  Many types of plants show a similar structure inside.  In nature, beauty is NOT only skin deep!
Mother Nature's Artistry is featured here on the last day of every month.
