Plus miniature preserved fern and mom's basket. I keep walking into markets and seeing big piles of white nectarines. I sometimes wonder if the fern and basket thing has become my "signature"!?? Sometimes I want to put something in a simple bowl. Sometimes I want to put something in a basket without the fern. But NO!! Once again ,they go in a basket with the fern. My mom thinks my fruit looks better that way. Oy. Several years ago, I bought some real preserved miniature fern that was (I was told) only grown in ONE spot on some mountain in the the U.S., ONCE a year. I bought it and I LOVED it! It never dried out, and it was gorgeous. The seller ran out for several years (a mini nightmare) until I emailed her and offered to give her one of my embryos for a little fern (if she could scrape some together). Magically, a big old bag of it appeared in my mailbox...for free (from her private stash)!! I was thrilled, so I made something special and mailed it to her. So, long story short, this is the reason for the proliferation of baskets with fern :-D.

Fab nectarines and a great 'signature' to have.ReplyDelete

Thank you Mags and Cindy! But I'm serious, if you think the basket/fern combo is getting out of control (more than it already has, lol!), just tell me to give it a rest. Already today, because I made some persimmons last night, I woke up to find that my mom had already made a basket for them and put it on my table! I guess the simple bowl idea is out the window again ;-).ReplyDelete
Simple bowl? Nahhhh. I love ferns too and so do all my sisters. I always always display my real life fruits/ food with leaves (banana leaves for size, beauty and fragrance +ease of access). Its the green colour, I think. Fruits especially, just look so great with the green.ReplyDelete
Yo los encuentro ideales sobre los helechos, le da un toque de frescura y realidad.ReplyDelete
Ok Sans, well you do have a VERY keen aesthetic eye, that's for sure! I won't feel weird about overdosing on fern anymore, lol!!ReplyDelete
