And that brings us to the end of the pictures from the conservatory.
What's coming tomorrow? Who knows?

Yay for ferns! And for the chance to use the word curlicue.
I believe The Fern is an inspiring plant, but Wikipedia is less impressed. It offers the following.
"One problem with fern classification is the problem of cryptic species. Cryptic species are those which are morphologically similar to another species, but which differ genetically in ways that prevent fertile interbreeding."
I had to stop reading, for fear of learning other tragic fern problems. Millions of ferns are prevented from fertile interbreeding. Won't you please help?

Ooooh.... pretty! reminds me of going to pick fiddleheads in the swamp with my dad at the farm we lived in when I was 4.

cryptic species makes my head hurt.
but I do love how the curlicues become out of focus.
