My daughter and her husband are traveling in England and in their absence I am charged with caring for this fern and several other less fragile plants in their San Francisco apartment. I made some visual notes as well, while I was there, admiring the most recent disposition of objects on the various walls and perches and shelves.

At bottom, a thriving terrarium, bought for a small sum from a lady who collects interesting bottles and somehow or other gets the soil and the plants arranged on the inside.
