fern and sprout

Mama Fern & Baby Sprout, late August 2010
Fern's baby officially has a name: Sprout. I'm not very original in my naming, but the names I choose are fitting.

Besides the name, I also decided that Sprout is a boy. There's nothing at all feminine about the stump in the pot.

Mama Fern keeps growing, and I worry that her leaves will brush the ceiling again by next summer, necessitating another surgery. I'm already nervous about cutting her in half again. I don't think I could bear it if I accidentally killed her. At least I have a year to mentally prepare for it. If surgery is not feasible, we will just have to move to another house with higher ceilings.

What do you think Brad would say to that?:)
