Awakening fern

It is fascinating at this time to watch, day by day, the fronds of ferns slowly unfurl and the blades of the young leaves take shape.  The circular shape at the end of the frond figures prominently in Maori art.  It is known to the Maoris as a koru and symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace.   (See examples of koru art on   https://www.pinterest.co.uk/jocoxhead/koru-art/?lp=true)

  1. Another one I was sure I commented on – I remember checking the link, too. Fascinating _ I didn’t know this was a motif for them but it sure makes sense. I love these images. 🙂
