image #110. 7 May 2017. Fiddlehead ferns.

I don’t know if these ferns from my garden are true edible fiddleheads -somehow I feel if common or garden* Scottish ferns were edible, summer hillwalkers would have been harvesting them in swathes by way of revenge.  But whatever this exact species, the name really suits them at this stage of development.

*possibly the first time I have used this phrase in its correct and original context.
