Today I began my walk at Howarth Park later than usual. I'm always amazed at how an hour or so can completely change the look of the park. These ferns (I don't yet know what they're called) are sprouting in large groups everywhere. I began by trying to draw a group of them nestled among some mossy rocks and backlit by the sun, but found myself mesmerized by the detailed structure of the leaves, so I gave up on the group and allowed myself to utterly dwell on the details of one individual. Oh what fun that was!
