ferns . fiddleheads

A preview shot of all the pendants I’ll be adding to my shop this week. Loving all the spring colors this week.

Christmas Fern fiddleheads, Cardamine or “Lady’s Smock”, Apple Blossoms, both wild (the white ones) and cultivar (pink), Bleeding Heart, Wild Strawberries, White Violet, and more Periwinkle!

Remember: this is the last week before I take all my stock to the fair, so if you’re thinking of picking something up, you might want to before Friday, lest it be snatched up this weekend.

The Floating Poem

by Adrienne Rich

Whatever happens with us, your body
will haunt mine—tender, delicate
your lovemaking, like the half-curled frond
of the fiddlehead fern in forests
just washed by sun. Your traveled, generous thighs
between which my whole face has come and come—
the innocence and wisdom of the place my tongue has found there—
the live, insatiate dance of your nipples in my mouth—
your touch on me, firm, protective, searching
me out, your strong tongue and slender fingers
reaching where I had been waiting for years for you
in my rose-wet cave—whatever happens, this is.
