Return of the Fern

The ferns used to grow thick around our creek, until Hurricane Ivan wiped them out, and the two year drought that followed finished them off. I was pleased this week to find four little survivors, which had been hiding under the overgrown groundcover

The back garden has not been worked since 2004. It's been taken over by Wedelia, Asiatic Jasmine, and Mexican Petunias (and weeds, of course). Now that I'm finally tackling the back garden, who knows what other gems I might uncover?

Hi Deborah, I just found your blog from Blotanical. I am also in Florida and always enjoy reading other Florida blogs since our climes are so different than the rest of the country.

I'm glad your ferns are springing back to life --- they are strong in character aren't they?
