ABC Wednesday - F is for Fern



F is for Fern............



a green furled fern in the spring



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.
