Ferns, Several Kinds. May 26, 2010

A lot of ferns grow in these parts.  Here are a few shots of the ferns hereabout.

Ostrich ferns, pointed and elegant and long past their delicious fiddlehead stage:

Maiden’s head ferns, geometric, like tiles on an ancient wall:

…and Cinnamon ferns, with their separate fertile fronds standing proudly, ready to send forth their spores:

…and on their sticky stems, ants gathering their sweetness:

It’s magical, this time of year, when things make their leap from sleeping to running at full speed into their futures.

And all we need to do to be a part of it is to notice.
