Great expectations

In two months time I hope it will all look like this again, with the winter long forgotten.

Looks great I love ferns, dug up some wild ones in the field at my parents house in Clare last week to put near our pond.

I have well over a hundred different types of ferns, but the tree fern in the picture is dead after the winter of discontent. The British Pteridological Society are coming to Ireland in July and our garden was one of their ports of call. If you like ferns then you might consider joining this society, I am in it and I really enjoy their annual bulletin and magazine.

I love the look of ferns myself. I was in New Zealand Feb last year and couldn't believe the size of the tree ferns there, growing away in forest areas on the mountain sides.

Ah summer! Your garden looking like an oasis of lushness, as usual.
