I know .. how boring a post can this be ? .. Well this is my baby. The first fern I ever bought for my garden. It is a "Log Fern" .. a native which should be numerous in it's habitat but for some quirky reason is not and is deemed "special". Indeed it is special because believe it or not I have waited over 6 years for it to get this big and healthy looking. I was sure many times that it didn't like my garden or me to boot .. that it was slowly going to fade into the ground and run away from its new home. To the left of it is another "character" Canada Lily .. another VERY slow grower and requires loads of patience but it has an amazing if not delicate tiny flower .. So called "native" plants can some times need very patient gardeners .. but hey .. I'm not going any where so I will put in the effort .. as long as I can have a party in other areas of the garden and shake things up a little. meanwhile back at the "Old Folks Home ......." crickets chirping in the background sound affects ... zzzzz !
