Koru, at Hamilton Gardens, New Zealand. The Koru is the Maori word that relates to this unfurling growing-tip of the native Ponga fern. The Koru is said to symbolise emerging life, also interpreted as advancing skills, or development of a life-stage. Basically it's all about things getting better. A more "famous" use of the Koru is by Air New Zealand, who have it as their logo. See my pin about the AirNZ logo for more story. .....Antony.
