It’s always fun to share a hobby with your Mom, isn’t it? She sent me these photos a couple of nights ago and I’m so envious! It’s funny how I didn’t even notice these beautiful scenes when I actually lived in that house, but now that I have my own house and my own garden, I’m so inspired by the beauty that my Mom creates in that yard! She introduced me to the combination of perennial begonia with lace fern, in the first photo, what a lovely combination. Unfortunately, the lace fern lives up to its name and is very delicate… No good for a dog that likes to traipse around the garden like he owns the place. Oh well!
It’s been almost a year and I’m still on a fern kick. I’m beginning to think it’s permanent.
PS – Did you know there’s a whole society dedicated to ferns?
