This is beautiful.. Looks healthy. We have one similar here, called Hapu'u fern. When people clear their lot to build (it's basically a fern forest) in-between trees of course.. but they often just doze the whole thing? They think, oh, I'll just plant palms or something. So, they end up with weeds and scrub trees.. unless they have some kind of vision, they'll have to forever maintain it.

I do love ferns, this reminds me of the tall tree ferns we have in our garden.

It feels as if we're being embraced by its verdant green fronds, JM. What a great composition.

After so many years, I still associate fern leaves with fractal geometry!

A sharp, gorgeous photo. But I thought looking at it on the portal that is might be marijuana!

Lush, green, lovely fern plant! I want to get one as an indoor plant!

It's just
a geometric wonder space.

The fern makes a great pattern, radiating from the centre. The ferns around here are now all dry and brown.

No Brasil nós chamamos essa plantinha de samambaias!
Elas são delicadas, mas dizem que trazem "boas energias"para todo o lugar!
Linda foto!
