picking a favorite child
i love ferns. they grow all around my house. i watch over them. i nurse them. i move them to safety when they are at risk from mowers or foot traffic. they are like my children. but i have a confession. i love one of my children just a little bit more than all the others. actually, it’s not even close. my favorite is maidenhair fern. sorry ostrich fern, bracken fern, wood fern, and my lovely polypodies. but i love your sister more.
