springtime genius

Beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.
--Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic

Above: One of my favorite sights of spring...coils of ferns, waiting to unfurl. Brilliant! :)
