Grow With the Flow by TeaPhotography Grow With the Flow by TeaPhotography
This is an overall dedication to all the lovely people who continue to be very supportive, understanding, and patient friends. :heart:

This is my photo to share with you all that represents the Spring Equinox we had nearly a month ago, of which I cannot help but acknowledge the Equinoxes and Solstices as very important calendar, as well as dates, in NATURE!  It is also representative of Easter and my deepest respects and understanding of all of my friends and family who acknowledge and celebrate this holiday, and THIRDLY it is for EARTH DAY, which is coming up on April 22nd, a DAY I feel is especially important in remembering all that Earth provides for us, and how we should be treating Her with the utmost respect and kindness in return.

There is always rejuvenation within the spiral of life.

Thank you my dear friends for your continued understanding of time gaps when I am not able to be here on dA quite as often as I would still love to be.
KNOW, how much I still love deviantART, and all the good that does come from it, and that it is the friends I've met here, who have been the BEST part... your understanding without knowing everything, and patience with me, continues to amaze and humble me. I am forever and ever grateful! :heart:

I can't agree more, Tea, with what you have said about the earth, and how we should treat Her with kindness (and gratitude) for what she gives to us. :heart:
Very nice capture you have shared, in respect to nature.

GRATITUDE, yes... you couldn't have added a better word, for it is so true, that to live IN gratitude, in general, is about the best way to survive! :huggle:
Thank you for your kind compliment my sweet friend. :hug:

We must "live IN gratitude, in general".    Amen to that, sis!   For "the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away"...  But when man is doing the taking away -  to him Self...  It's just beyond stupid.


You're so very welcome, sweet Tea. :aww:!!

Again, you could not have said it any better... and indeed the part about "when MAN is doing the taking away...!" But I don't mean man, I mean person/human. :XD:
We really do think a lot alike... i have a feeling if we ever were to meet in person, we'd get a long quite well. :cuddle:

I meant man as in 'mankind', meaning the 'human' race as a whole. :)    

Yes, we do very often, think alike! :)    And it would be Great. if ever that were to happen, I agree, Sweet Tea. :aww:!! :heart:!!

It really is... watching Nature's cycle of life, in this way, yes indeed! It does kind of look like a shrimp... someone else said it reminds them of some kind of sea life, so yes, apparently it does have that sort of look!
Thank you... "writing" actually was my first love... just too shy to upload much poetry... except a lot time ago a dA friend gave me a bit of courage and I put a bit over poetry over a few of my photos. But then I stopped doing that.
:shrug:  I thank you though for the compliment... you know I think that you have a gift with words actually. :nod: :heart: :hug:

Aren't the baby fern fronds just amazing how they grow. We have tons of them all over... but we can't see the babies and they don't grown well unless we clear the aging fronds from the outer part of the whole plant. I know, you must know what I mean. Thank you Lawrence. :heart:

Thank you for your comment... there was a time, I would not have known what this is, either, until I visited a place that had TONS of them... and now live in a place with tons of them. It is a single baby fern frond. It is uncurling, or growing outward. They are really amazing to see grow, and they grow fast and from the middle of the whole plant outward, so you have to take the outer older browning fronds out and away to let the inside babies breathe and grow.

I hope that's helped! :D

Ahhh no, I don't cut these for vases, they are ferns that seem to grow everywhere near many coasts that do have some humid rainy weather at times. We have tons of them and we have to pull back the old fronds, to let the baby ones breathe and spread out. This is a single baby fern frond. Thank you for your wondrous comment. I love to see you, too... I venture to say that for much of the present and near future, I will continue to return to dA, even when there have been spaces I've not been here. Too many wonderful people to touch base with you, you included, dear Brother! :cuddle:

This is the finest condition in my opinion, although there is great respect for the majestic aged fronds, I must admit. Sometime, if you get a chance just push back the full size fronds and get to the center of the whole plant and you will see these baby curls... sometimes when such ferns get too large, the huge old ones stifle the growth of the baby ones in the center, and that's when the whole plant will begin to appear to wither and brown.

So it is healthy to clear the older ones away at times, though I do so with great respect. :nod:

Being on dA has always made me happy, and it continues to, when there are people like you still here to touch base with. Thank you for everything, my dear Brother.
