Symmetry sidewalks

Sidewalk symmetry seen while on our mini vacation 2 weeks ago.
 Reynolda Gardens, which is located in Winston-Salem, NC
on the campus of Wake Forest University 
  It reminds me of a quilt

All the side walks on the grounds are  gorgeous

All the sidewalks lead to the former of the R.J. Reynolds Family.
The home is now a museum
The Greenhouse is now maintained by Wake Forest University.

Nature with fuzzies and Feline Friday

Hares Foot Fern, also referred to as Rabbits Foot Fern (Davallia Fejeensis), is an evergreen perennial fern. It is indigenous to Fiji and a member of the Davalliaceae family. A resilient fern that can live both inside and outside is the rabbit feet fern.

The Rabbit’s foot ferns are named for their delightful furry rhizomes that creep over the top of the plant pot. The growing conditions required are similar to most other ferns including managing moisture levels well. Functional as well as decorative, the rhizomes absorb moisture and nutrients as they crawl across the moist soil.

Growing to 15 cm (6 in) tall by 30 cm (12 in) wide, it consists of densely packed clusters of elongated oval stems, covered in harmless (although very sharp) yellow or brown spines, and in spring producing white or yellow flowers. It is among the most common and most variable of its genus in nature, and is a popular subject for cultivation

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #126

Am not showering in a public shower

I like my privacy
No air conditioning
Glamping in a hotel is my speed
