A few weeks ago James snapped this blurry instagram of me potting a maidenhair fern in our apartment. It was the weekend and I was working on a story for Gardenista about what a neighborhood plant shop had informed me was a button fern, but what has become quite clear is actually a kind of maidenhair fern. Oh, wily pteridophytes. I’m learning. While I was busy repotting the fern, James sequestered himself in the loft to do some reading. Unbeknownst to me he was also hanging over the edge of the loft, snapping photos. I’m so rarely in photos, but so often in this position, that it was funny to see this view of me. It’s a shot that should probably have stayed in its tiny instagram size, but I couldn’t help sharing it here today. Especially since you can now read the full ferny story, right here.
