I was invited by Judy Dykstra-Brown to take up the gauntlet and participate in a 7 day nature posting challenge. As part of the challenge I am to nominate a person on each of the seven days I post a photograph. They are under no obligation to join in but wonderful if they do.

Day 2: One of my favourite plants – the birds nest fern. For some reason this plant brings me a feeling of tranquility. A rainforest plant, I always plant one in my garden, and seeing it flourish always makes me feel as though this is the place I should be. This one above was growing in a rainforest.

I would like to invite Julie Powell to join in the 7 day nature challenge.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. How interesting that the first photo shows a messy plant but the second shows a crown. Did you notice in the second image, if you squint, a brown bird points its beak into the nest?

  2. Looking down into this fern reminds me of looking at a closeup of a daisy. I’m amazed you can grow one of these. So unique!
