Spring is always an interesting time of year for me as this is when the ferns unfurl.
Most of these ferns could be found in May on walks around the Pacific Spirit Park, located on the university grounds.
Fiddlehead ferns are a delicacy in the spring markets, and once I saw a sign saying ‘Don’t Pick the Fiddleheads’, such an appropriate name for tightly coiled ferns.
Fern unfurling on the Pembrokeshire Coast Trail in May in Wales.
Furled furry ferns.
Twisting and turning.
Little fern trying to straighten itself out.
When I was little my dad told me that behind our house the forest was so deep and so dark that dinosaurs still lived there and no one had ever discovered them.
The ferns there were taller than me and looked like this as they slowly uncoiled.
Another sketch. When the ferns looked like the ferns above, can’t you just see why I might have spotted a few dinosaurs lurking in the forest?
