Recently i was outside the city and in the countryside and was astonished at all the wonderful new year growth that was beginning to show itself. I was most interested in the various ferns that were beginning to grow and i thought i would share a few photos of what i saw.
This is a photo i took of a young set of fiddle heads coming up out of the ground. The Ostrich fern is a crown-forming, colony-forming fern, occurring in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.
This Cinnamon Fern is native to the Americas and Eastern Asia and grows in moist woodlands.
I believe this is a Marsh Fern but i may be wrong. It prefers to grow in marshy situations in full sun.
