These ferns have captured my attention. Since the discovery a week ago, I have visited them nearly every day. Their growth has been incremental up until now and I don't know what to expect in the coming week. The photos here are from early in the week.
Out on a limb, my usual stance these days, I will tentatively offer an identification of Cinnamon Fern, Osmunda cinnamomea--a fern known to enjoy splashing around in the water.
I will try to stay with these, documenting their progress. And if things work out well, I will display the process in a new kind of presentation. More on this soon...
Gretchen and I exchanged comments on Rabbit Wednesday and I promised to include the lovely quote she so kindly sent along.
This will be a collection without order, made up of many sheets which I have copied here, hoping afterwards to arrange them in order, in their proper places according to the subject of what they treat; and I believe that before I am at the end of this I shall have to repeat the same thing several times; and therefore, O reader, blame me not, because the subjects are many, and the memory cannot retain them and say 'this I will not write because I have already written it'.
