Baby Orangutans...

Last week I pruned my tree fern after having removed its winter jacket. It always seems so brutal, but within days, new leaves emerge from the centre, uncurling their way upwards.

It's like they've just been itching to get going. You can almost see them grow right in front of your eyes.

They remind me of baby orangutans stretching their little arms up...


  1. That shows an exceptional eye! I will never forget that comparison!

    Thinking of you and hope you are travelling well.


Hi! Thanks for leaving me a comment, I really enjoy reading them and I will try to reply if I can find an email address for you...
