Berry Surprised
Berry Surprised

I hadn’t known these fern-like plants had berries.  The long fronds are surprisingly soft, and I can’t help but reach out and touch them.  Well, more than touch.  You just want to cup them in your hand and run your hand down the length of them as if you were going to strip the needles off.  They’re at least as appealing to the tactile senses as the visual ones.  And don’t these January blooms look like they should berry (is that a verb?) at Christmas?
