F is for Fern............
Only in the spring can one see this delicate beauty in action - the ferns slowly unfurling and reaching towards the sun.
This light green is also only seen this time of the year - these ferns turn a darker green as they mature.
They are the fiddlehead ferns that we collect to eat in the spring before they unfurl.
Delicious to eat, and beautiful to look at - great gifts from Mother Nature!
This is the fifth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
