Have been finishing off the backyard stairs, and took out some time for some shots of the blooming garden. As you know I love tree ferns - here are some images of the emerging unfurling fronds uncurling...
See the defensive hairs on the frond? Who would think this will be three meters across in a few weeks?
This is what I think is the rough tree fern - it has a rougher leaf structure and is definitely different to the cyathea cooperi.
Almost embryonic - can you see the arms and legs on this little guy?
