We have a spot on the mountain that is near our front gate. I've started calling it "Fern Triangle" and for some reason the name has stuck. In early spring, this area is a brown and barren triangle of bleakness. But, as summer approaches, small shoots of beautiful ferns start sprouting. Each week we notice more growth. Right now the ferns are just starting to develop and are nearly waist high. They'll grow a few more feet and will fill in as tall, abundant foliage. It's a pretty site. I love this area, as it brings a sense of calm and peace with it.
