My sister is particularly fond of ferns, and I like it a lot, too. Some walks we've been on while in Yorkshire we were so surrounded by ferns it was easy to imagine a time when they were the size of trees and made up large parts of the forests.Love it how the photos correspond with the background of your blog's template!
I love them especially at this stage when they are still such a lush fresh green, and not quite unfurled yet, Meike. These grow in a little park here in the neighbourhood.
Of course in New Zealand the fern - silver fern - is one of the country's emblems. Just to be picky ferns are rarely fragile in my experience!
Poetic license to create allitteration, Graham! ;)
I LOVE FERNS, these are so beautiful... i like them curled, i like then unfurled, i like them open.
Yes I think I remember you have blogged pictures of them too, Sandra.
the shot of the fern unfurling seems almost magical! all are lovely, as is your haiku.
Thanks Norma. Yes it is a kind of magic, isn't it! ;)
Loved these photos of the ferns unfurling....you did a great job capturing them.National Geographic had better watch out.
Your ferns are beautiful, so lush!
Communication is what makes blogging fun :)
