Baa Baa Bracken

Baa baa bracken

Have you any wool?

Yes Sir, yes Sir three fronds full…

Sorry about that, and apologies to the rhyme,  but  these unfurling bracken fronds had a distinctly woolly look about them and I was struggling for a title, I’d started out with ‘fleecy ferns’ and then realised it was bracken I looking at..

Bracken -1

The immature fronds are called fiddle heads, I can see why, it’s claimed they are edible, I imagine they are a bit chewy.

Bracken 1-1

It is Derbyshire Open Arts 2012 this weekend, I may have to brave the bank holiday traffic.
