I have'nt been able to sleep for two nights Poppy!x I even found an App..that you can send pictures/photos to, to have them identified..but, l don't know how to do Apps..! :( I even sent it to a few friends to identify it..no oneknew..I won't even tell you what one suggested..! :). It certainly looks more animal than plant...!
I would never have guessed it was a fern, Poppy! It looks like a hairy caterpillar wrapped up in a leaf. We have hundreds of ferns around the edges of our lower fields but they don't have a hairy surface like that. I can recognise it as such now you have said.
We thought it might be, given the shape. When the biped was a child, she would pick fiddleheads in the spring. Best served steamed with some butter and salt and pepper on top, with fish. It was always a fish accompaniment. Yum.
That fern is scary looking...
Well we can all stop worrying about Poppy getting attacked buy a giant caterpillar. Enjoy your fern Poppy.
MOL! My human knew it was a fern, but we could totally tell how someone would mistake it for a critter.
Cool, can't wait to see it when it is fully opened.
Nature is marvellous, isn't she?
That fern totally looked like a critter, Poppy!
