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.
