The photo is of new fronds beginning to unfurl on the tree fern in the Vicarage garden. Their resemblance to crosiers (not the simple wooden ones bishops of all shades of theological opinion seem to be sporting these days, but the more traditional kind) is quite startling. Although, in view of Bishop Edwin Barnes' comments about bishops in general in the current edition of the Church Observer, perhaps I should give the plant away p.d.q. as it obviously cannot be trusted.
