Lace of the Forest


like lace
ferns draw our gaze to their intricate forms


tight spirals

soon to unfurl


wonderful characters 


in a multitude of expression


spirals
catch our heart and eyes


beauty
for us to enjoy

  1. Fern. So beautiful and intricate at every stage of its development. I especially love the lighting in that first capture and all the curls and swirls of those unfolding spirals! So delicately captured!

  2. These fern spirals are incredible!!! Tender and touching... How could I know (without your photos) that such beauty exists? Thank you, Tammie!:)

  3. So true - fern floors of the forests are so lovely. Great pics. Any signs of fall out west? My favorite season - doesn't come until November here though.

  4. Oh, how I love the ferns. Even my spouse "mows" around the ones that have made their home in the mossy patches of our backyard.

    They are, indeed, wonderful characters!

  14. Lovely photos, Tammie! Ferns seem almost magical to me, and your photos definitely capture that. I especially like the ones where they haven't completely unfurled- the shapes look like some kind of secret elvish calligraphy!

  16. Oh, my. We have these fern, too...especially in the forests of my childhood. How beautiful--fills my eyes. Though I have observed them many times--yet you capture something I've never seen.

    You are amazing, my dear sweet Friend.

  18. Such loveliness, Tammie - and so many spirals. There is a book by Dr Manjir Samanta Laughton ('Punk Science') in which she suggests that 'black holes' are all around us, and that this spiralling into existence that we see in plants is part of the black hole phenomenon.
