Fern at University of British Columbia Arboretum In Vancouver, Canada

I noticed a fern that reminded me of a tiny sea horse in the fern gardens at University of British Columbia Botanical Gardens in Vancouver.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

    Looks like a ribbon on a Christmas package. The way you would pull the ribbon over the scissors to make them curl like that.

  2. How lovely! That’s a seahorse all decorated in green and gold.

  3. Oh..this is absolutely exquisite. You’ve outdone yourself here!!!
