Nature Close-Ups: Ferns

Over the last few weeks, the ferns and brackens have been unfolding their beautiful “golden” spirals.

Here is one in the early stages.

Close-up, the stems are like dragons.

They grow in groups along the hedgerows, like strange creatures with party-blowers.

Whenever I see them, I’m always amazed at the intricacy of nature’s designs.

  1. I liked the description – ‘strange creatures with party blowers’! The curled up branches remind me of fuzzy caterpillars and the branches do look like dragons, close-up. πŸ™‚
