Malcolm is no great gardener, yet he has a strange liking for any of the ferns in his garden.

Some years ago he purchased a tree fern, a Dicksonia Antarctica, as an unloved "for sale" item at the Eden Project in Cornwall. For the last few weeks Malcolm has found himself obsessing that it would recover after the hard winter. At last things are looking more positive.

And then, nearby, lurking under a shrub there is the spectacle of unfolding, coiled shoots. They are so perky they somehow remind Malcolm of meerkats.

Not an issue of major importance, just a nice feeling: summer is i-coming in. Sphere: Related Content
