UNFOLDING OF THE FERN




The tender young frond of the fern is beginning to unfold beside several stalks of bamboo.
This is one of several exotic plants I will be posting from my trip to the Conservatory of Flowers.

That reminds me of a fiddlehead. Very nicely photographed, photowannabe. I'm looking foward to seeing what's growing inside that lovely conservatory.

I can't post other than as anonymous for some reason

I'm very frustrated with this anonymous business. I could not post on any Beta Bloggers sites so I bit the bullet and signed up for Beta my self. That probably did it. I could get into some blogs but i don't like all these anonymous listings.
What do we do now?

Ben said...

I did realised this anonymous business and, YES, I complaint to Blogger. I mean a bug report.
The 12th one is me, BTW.

Is that a fiddlehead fern? I think that's what they are called but I'm not certain. Lovely shot.

This is a shot close to our heart here in New Zealand... We have lots of ferns in the native forests. Air New Zealand's symbol is a Koru, a fern frond.
