Is there anything that heralds spring in the Pacific Northwest more than fern fronds unfurling?
After a week of cold and snowy weather I’m ready.
Halfway there! 🙂

That won’t happen here( in Massachusetts) for at least 3 months.
We’re a long ways off here too! Wishful thinking on my part! 😁
I have spiderwort in my yard, and it does a similar thing. It always blooms right around Easter, and it curls before it opens them (in sequence), so you get recurring blossoms. It’s great. But I’ve learned to look for it as a sign of Spring.
I love how flowers unfurl. So beautiful. Thanks for your comment. 🙂
I love ferns! (unfurling or not, haha). Great photos!
Thank you! I love ferns too! And isn’t it fun to say ‘fern fronds unfurling?” 😉
Haha, yes, say it five times fast…I’d fail 😉
Your fern fronds are wonderful for this week. Simply delightful 😀
Thank you so much! I appreciate your photo challenges; they keep the creative juices flowing! 🙂
Well done getting these lovely images of ferns. I actually have a patch of them in the shady corner of our yard. Of course they are presently hiding!
Thank you. I pulled these out of my spring archives. My ferns are still standing tall outside but any new growth is tucked safely somewhere deep inside! 🙂
That makes sense.
Our weather has been so squirrelly, like spring in January. I have perennials coming up that shouldn’t be for another couple of months yet. Much as I like warmer weather, I’m hoping the temps will get more seasonal for a few weeks!
We started the year out with warm temperatures. But for the last week we’ve had cold and wind and snow so now I’m ready for spring. But I know it’s a long way off. Last year we had most of our snow in February.
