The Fibonacci in Nature Exhibition exhibition will coincide with the Caroline Hills Open Garden days and aims to celebrate patterns in nature.

In 1202 AD, Leonardo Fibonacci wrote in his book “Liber Abaci” of a simple numerical sequence. This sequence was known as early as the 6th century AD by Indian mathematicians, but it was Fibonacci who introduced it to the west. Starting with 0 and 1, each new number in the sequence is simply the sum of the two before it. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377 . . .

You won’t find Fibonacci numbers everywhere in the natural world — many plants and animals express different number sequences. But, Fibonacci numbers appear in nature often enough to prove that they reflect some naturally occurring patterns.
