Fibonnaci Sequence and a Squirrel’s Delight

I saw this plant in my daughter-in-law’s garden last weekend.

The sunflower’s petals gone, the flower head heavy and bent over with the spiraling pattern of seeds- Fibonnaci numbers((0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, … etc, each number is the sum of the two numbers before it)  found in nature.  My mother was always talking about Fibonnaci.

A mathematical miracle AND a squirrel’s delight.

Not sure how much a squirrel would  need to store for the long winter but this one sunflower’s seeds looks like a good start.
