Ooh. I love that. Nice pic, too. One of the most amazing things to me in nature is the life within a lowly bulb. Amazing what springs forth from such a humble beginning.
A beautiful thought. I used to call sword ferns lanterns of the forest, especially when sunlight filtered through the trees. I love your nature quotes.
What a thought. I always told myself the roots held treasures just for me. But then...it's all about me, don't you know?
I did know that, Barb!
