Look What's Up!

I found these lovely fiddleheads in East Sandwich. These will unfold into lush and lovely ferns. Do you know why they are called fiddleheads?


  1. I love ferns, mine are unfurling just now too, they look almost dead, then all of a sudden.... :0)

    Fiddlehead comes from the way they look like the scroll on the end of violins, I think!

  2. I just took a photo of some from up here but havent posted it yet. I agree, it's because the look like the narrow end of the violin/ fiddle.
