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)

Oh, to be in England Now that April’s there

 

These photographs were taken from my doorstep yesterday morning.  The occasion was enhanced by the early Spring sunshine.  I was more fortunate than Robert Browning  –  I was there, not abroad!
