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..
The immature fronds are called fiddle heads, I can see why, it’s claimed they are edible, I imagine they are a bit chewy.
It is Derbyshire Open Arts 2012 this weekend, I may have to brave the bank holiday traffic.
