The Christmas fern forest is in full gear. These are the only ferns here, out of about 8 different type, that I can positively identify.
No idea what this type is. Maybe a type of bracken fern?
Chigger guards the entrance to the Enchanted Forest.
Okay, now these are definitely sensitive ferns; I do know that one too. They haven't put up their little brown center stalk yet though.
Some very large trillium. No idea the variety. I should have gotten one of the chickens to stand by these because they are easily taller than the girls.
My red azaleas are in excellent form this year. Very pretty. I can't wait until they are big! The ferns around these steps and walls just planted themselves. I haven't moved any so far. They seemed to have picked good spots.
My opinion is this is a rattlesnake fern........but I could be wrong. Maybe some type of grape fern.
My photo designer checkin' out the set up before hand. She's got an eye for detail. Actually, she's making sure I didn't drop any treats anywhere in the area. She's got an eye for that too.
My never-ending quest to get some decent photos of the birds around here. Didn't do too well today. We had intermittent showers, so that's my excuse. I was happy to see a male grosbeak again this year but my photos did not come out well at all. Actually, Jack spotted him first. I hope he will be back.
