Ferns in the Winter Forest: The Beauty of Foliage


An unexpected bonus of the snowy weather of late has been to illustrate just how important foliage can be. This is a native fern growing in my wild forest area at home, set off by where some snow made it through the canopy. How those leaflets attach to the stem is as wonderful as any orchid flower. I shall not name it (likely Dryopteris species, but then taxonomy of ferns can be complicated, and I apologize if completely deluded in my off-the-cuff naming).

I have just made this photo my new logo for accounting etc. In marketing-speak it should carry a message, and my message is Structure with a Organic Feel. Just made that up.
