Sword Fern Spiral

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day yesterday. I had a wonderful time with my son, mom, brother and husband. We were so busy! We went to a plant sale and had lunch together. Then I headed home for a bit and took a nice afternoon nap cuddling with my son, and finished off our evening with a walk through the woods. It was a peaceful end to the day, and I took the time to capture this new fern unwinding itself in the warm weather.

  7. Very beautiful! Several years back, I learned about the koru from New Zealand- a basic design in their tradtional art, based on the unfolding fern-
    It symbolizes new life and purity
