Repetition of Size

 

 

 

 

The patterns and textures built up, probably unknowingly, by farmers can be amazing creations. The repeating sizes and the variation in that repetition tell interesting stories.

 

The repetition in size of the major trees here is obvious, but between these, in the same row, smaller trees are visible. Between the rows of major trees, every second row has been planted with well spaced younger trees.

 

There is surely a sound agricultural reason for this staggered planting, but it’s nice to think the farmer does it to create interesting patterns as if working on a giant living canvas.
