King Fern Unsprung - Episodes Two to Five

Two to Five seems to imply the odds for the favourite on a day at the races, those minutes of clock-watching for the job you weren't in tune with. But here it's none of these, just the next four episodes of the King Fern's unfurling. For a moment in Episode Three ( 2nd down) the fronds had taken on the look of a slinky, with its capacity for hopeless entanglement ( was this toy really a metaphor for matters of the heart?), but then those frondlets (yes, I am saying frondlets) straighten up, smooth as  waxed fruit.
