Unfurl


Fiddle heads of wood fern, Thelypteris kunthii, begin to unfurl in the back woodland garden.


Buds forming on the southern wax myrtle, Myrica cerifera.

There is nothing prettier than new life in the garden.

I found your blog while surfing on my lunch break. The photos are excellent! My partner & I moved to E. Austin (Windsor Park) in fall '06 and I've slowly been transforming my yard from overgrown suburban 1950's to something more xeric. I imagine we're dealing with some of the same issues (soil/drainage/dog?). I love what you've done! -Ben

Oh - the fiddle heads are amazing indeed. There's just something about them - they seem so unusual and exotic. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful natural spiral on that fiddlehead fern. :)

Sorry for being slow to introduce myself--I like your blog, and I've been reading for a while now. Found you on Pam's site, I think.
