It's a good life.
Is it still called Woodwardia? Regardless, one of my favorites. Just uncommon enough (around here) to delight, but happy to propagate and emerge each spring.
do you think plant/animal life will suffer much under these odd weather conditions?SQ
Wayne,Yes, it is a woodwardia, Woodwardia areolata. It is one of my favorites.SQ,Having a hard freeze in April is unusual for us. Many of the early bloomers got killed and that will result in diminished supplies of berries and some nuts. The animals who depend on these food supplies are going to have a lean year I'm afraid.
Ooooh. I clicked on it and saw that exquisite fiddle head. My backyard ferns (I think they're 'Interrupted' and 'Wood' fern) sent up fuzzy fiddleheads a few weeks ago. The squirrels ALWAYS devour the first crop. Are you familiar with this behavior?
cathy,I know the deer, rabbits, and even beaver love to nibble on these fiddleheads but I haven't seen squirrels eat them. I feel certain they would though, such a tasty temptation ;)
