In retrospect


The end of January, bitter cold winds and temperatures but suddenly one notices the days getting longer. Winter still has it's icy grip on us but Spring is just around the corner.

Beauty can still be found in the ice formations along the water front but brrrr, how much nicer to look at something green.

I thought I'd choose a few old photos from the past to get our imaginations flowing...


From the smallest frond unfurling to color in all it's glory, I love ferns!


Fuzzy drumstick heads...


Fat prickly fronds...


Airy and delicate lady ferns...

None of them are here in my new home but oh to dream that they will once again grace my garden...

Such are heavenly dreams made of.

However many times I see ferns at this stage, whether in photos or in real life, I am awe-struck. They are so beatiful, elegant and complex.

Hope you are doing ok.

Our fronds are far from unfurling... still covered in snow, but yours gives me hope.
