finger fad...




  1. simply WOW, in praise of the fern! I have to add on the tacky side-the fake ones can be embedded with the real to boost them up! pgt

  2. Kathy, as a child I was completely obsessed with ferns. Like any normal 10 year old! Right! Anyway, I collected books on them, images of them, and of course would tuck any fern I could find into my parent's garden. I even requested a fern house for my 11th birthday!

    So I have been in complete memory drive with these incredible and thoughtful post. And it is wonderful to see this much maligned genre of plants creeping back into floral and garden design. They are the most architectural of plants - and their ancient lineage further adds to their mysterious quiet beauty.

    Thanks for this delightful collection! Virginia x

  3. I love all types of ferns! They are immediately cooling to look at. Funny thing is I only had fiddleheads for dinner a couple of nights ago. Not only do they look good but are tasty as well!

  4. Adore this post...so pretty!! Love kimberly queen ferns. They seem to be the only ones I can keep alive.

  5. Ferns are one of our favorite plants. We keep them indoors year round; however, have to rotate out periodically because we often kill them. We both have a couple of macho ferns on the porch that we have managed to keep for several years. They are huge and quite difficult to bring in during the winter. Our husbands love to lug them in and out in the winter time. LOL Lovely post! So glad to have found your blog, thanks for stopping by and commenting today. XO Angela and Renee

  6. You have one of the coolest blogs around. The picture of the twins beds with the fern wall paper stopped me in my tracks.
