spring wonder

Only those who look with the eyes of children can lose themselves in the object of their wonder.
--Eberhard Arnold (1883-1935) German writer, philosopher and theologian 

One of my favorite sights of spring -- unfurling ferns fronds (aka Fiddleheads). Previous photos here and here.


  1. FYI - The Maori have a symbol of new life that is based on the curl of fern's fiddleheads... I believe the word is "koru"...
