F is for Fern
Maybe I’m not exactly a fern expert, but I thought they only grew indoors—like the fern hanging in my grandma’s kitchen. (I asked her about it once because the leaves look almost fuzzy!)
My grandma’s fern is not local, but it turns out there are some that DO grow in Alberta—like the ones around the edge of my mom’s rock garden. Apparently, ferns adapt to the cool Alberta spring temperatures (b-r-r-r-r), giving them an extra long growing season.
I don’t know if they are my favourite plant, but against my mom’s rocks, they are a deep green colour that breaks up all of the gray. Mom says they’ve been growing there since before we moved in. I think she really likes them.
My sister does too—she loves to watch the ladybugs crawl all over them. Yep, my sister loves bugs. <insert eye roll here>
Gotta jet! See you Monday for the letter "G!"

I'm a fan of ferns. Here, in Malaysia, they grow in abundance and there are even varieties which can be eaten! Visiting from http://wordsfromsonobe.wordpress.comReplyDelete
