Ferns


Coiled spirals seeking
sunshine, shadow, rain, and warmth,
Exuberant fronds.


Each year, I look forward to the unfolding of our ferns.  
From fiddleheads to full grown ferns, 
they present beautiful and interesting forms.  
This gift from Mother Nature inspired my art quilt, Unfolding,
which you can view here.

  9. i am a fern lover too -- i love to see the giant ones in the woods, but they also remind me of a victorian parlor or conservatory. that second shot really highlights the details of the great leaves. beautiful.
