In a Shady Spot

Along with the many other plants and flowers in my ideal garden, I’d love to keep a shady spot for a collection of Fern varieties. They are wonderful for pulling together a floral bouquet, and for filling shady areas where other plants may not thrive. I think they are just so delicate and graceful on their own.

In particular, I’d love to have this variety somewhere in the garden. It’s a Necklace Fern, and discovering it in the Algonquin garden last summer really made me appreciate Ferns a little more.  It’ also inspired this photograph, as well as many others in my collection.

  1. Beautiful, Cait! I love ferns, too, and I can see the delicate, romantic touch they give your garden and your photoraphs.

    My favorite is Adiantum venustum (Himalayan Maidenhair fern) but they are expensive and I haven't had the best luck with them. I also love the Japanese Painted Fern which has done well with all the rain we had this year!

    Happy Sunday! xo – g
