i've turned the christmas tree lights on this morning
for a bit of sparkle arkle
'cos it's kinda dark inside
with all the rain and gloomy weather outside.
i took this pic
to show you how much those little ferny fronds
have grown in a couple of weeks...
this fern is amazing.
it grows on the stump of an old mango tree
that we had to cut down to make way for a driveway
just after we moved into this house.
on one side of the stump is the fern
and on the other side is a flourishing staghorn..
they both just live off the decaying stump
which is sitting underneath the poinciana tree in the front yard.
this is what the fern looked like
just a few weeks prior to these new photos...
with the winter
and probably a lack of water
they had died right down
and in the pic above had just begun to sprout new growth.
those young fronds are just unfurling.
you can even see a little of the staghorn in amongst them.
i was only thinking this morning
that nature is just full of the miraculous...
and i think seeds are one of them.
what do you consider
as a miracle of nature?
mr t is off to get mr m from brisbane,
he's coming home for a while...
kara is outside at the moment,
unaware of the surprise that awaits her doggy psyche.
she'll be wagging her tail with delight
by the way...
now we are having problems
with the internet connection
and can't seem to access certain blogsites...
maybe it's the weather???
hopefully it will right itself.
i've got a little christmas crafting to share tomorrow,
nothing very earth shaking
but hopefully i can access my editing stuff
and trim a few dead corners off the photos!
another cosy day...
perfect for a bit of sewing!
i hope your day is perfect for doing what you want to too.
