The Ferns of Spring

I love the variety of colors found in blooming flowers and shrubs. But the ferns of spring look marvelous in green and their unfurling fronds rival any flower.

I found them everywhere this week in local gardens and woods where they thrive in the temperate climate of the Pacific Northwest.

I’m glad they do.

  1. They thrive here too. (I must check out how similar – or not – your climate is to ours. We are rather wetter and cooler than much of the UK.) And I love the unfurling. Beautiful photos – that diaphanous green light!

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚ I always heard our Seattle weather was similar to London’s, though we may be a bit warmer and also get more rain. Not sure how we compare to other places in the UK.

    • Thanks Pete. They’re so pretty right now with fresh green fronds and holding their own next to the more flashy colors of spring. ☺

  2. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ I haven’t seen any ferns for ages and you are right. They are magical in the spring.

  3. Oh my word, I love ferns! Here in Fresno it can be hard to keep them alive. They have to be kind of in the shade and even then I think you would have to give them lots of water. Since my Boston fern is fake, I don’t have to worry about that though πŸ˜‹

    • I love ferns too! We have a maritime climate here so the ferns are everywhere and happy. I can see that Fresno wouldn’t work for them.. too hot and dry! But I bet you do better with roses than I do with all that sun!
