Lush and green, beautiful new spring foliage emerges on a fern plant growing along a wooded trail.
We’re having our first heat wave of the summer here in California, so I was drawn to post a lush and cool fern image that I took this spring up in Oregon. I am currently huddled inside in the somewhat faulty air conditioning while my plants outside fry in the heat; the lime tree looks wilted and scorched despite the fact that I watered it thoroughly, and has dropped one of its very few immature fruits in protest. The waterlily blooms have sizzled in the relentless sunshine over the past few days, and many of their petals and sepals have shriveled up and turned brown. Given that my garden is looking less than stellar at the moment, it’s nice to be able to look back through my photography and see images of it thriving. It is also fun be able to peer at photos such as this one, and to attempt to conjure up the cool, dripping, moss-covered beauty that is spring in the Pacific Northwest… right here on a hot summer’s day in California.
