Wednesday Vignette – a seahorse convention

It’s fern-unfurling time in the garden. One of my favorite times of the year. They are so perfect when they start unraveling. Don’t get me wrong – I love them in full, extended glory as well, but seeing them like this is just precious. Maybe it’s the anticipation of it all? What do you think?

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

    To me they are like a lot of question marks. What beauties will spring yet reveal? 🙂 Have a beautiful day, Anna.

    They seem other-worldly to me–and ancient, which they are. Nice photo!

  3. One of my favorite things about spring, of which there are many. My WV is a play off last week’s:

    Sweet sight! Spring is definitely on its way. I saw a rare patch of sun on Saturday.

    I love to see unfurling ferns at this time of year too. I spent some time this past weekend on hands and knees cutting back my sword ferns, and could see the new fronds just starting to push their way out.

    Fiddle heads, can you eat all of them?

    Love the photo – gorgeous. And yes, anticipation …. see mine 🙂

  9. The newborn ferns seem the very definition of the promise of early spring, Anna. I’m glad to see that the winter is gradually releasing its hold in the PNW!

      We are too, Kris. How about you – are you sick of the heat yet? For as much as I enjoy seeing the sun here and there, I’m already dreading summer.

    Oh, yes, I love the anticipation of expanding buds and unfurling fronds. There’s so much change in the garden this time of year. It’s like water after the desert of winter, even though we’ve had quite enough water with regards to the rain, thank you very much. I kid about that. I’m happy nature is taking care of the watering and helping all my young plants get established. It’s going to be a lush growing season.
