A farewell to the Ferns..

                        In my garden the Ferns took over..

About 7 years ago when I moved into Hilltop Hall and entered the garden for the first time..there were just a few..but these Ferns were wild..and wanted to be free..so I let them..And now I live among a sea of Fern's..

Slowly in Autumn they will disappear..only to come back stronger next year...

“The cactus thrives in the desert while the fern thrives in the wetland.
 The fool will try to plant them in the same flowerbox.
 The florist will sigh and add a wall divider and proper soil to both sides.
 The grandparent will move the flowerbox halfway out of the sun.
 The child will turn it around properly so that the fern is in the shade, and not the cactus.
 The moral of the story? Kids are smart.”

Oh, I am pulled into your world dearest Dutchess...always. From Miss Moussie, Emily Dickenson, to FERNS...you know how to invite a person into your world with the warmth of an old friend. Ferns are wise; they are among the oldest plants on this earth from prehistoric times. Nothing can live so long and not have a system of survival. Oh the beauty of LIFE! Enjoy the waning days of summer - a word that is now just a word, but will come back full force NEXT YEAR! I hope Honey and Tea Rat brought you a chuckle! tteee

Ich mag diese Pflanzen und habe auch ein paar Exemplare in meinem Garten. Sie kamen einfach .... und vermehren sich gut.
Viele liebe Grüße
