  •  A lovely spring tour, bwren. (10+ / 0-)

    The first and most pleasant thought that somes to my mind when I think of the PNW is the lush undergrowth and the great variety of ferns, which I envy.  I've experimented in landscaping with different types of ferns which technically could work here in a few amenable locations, but they never make it very long.

    Except for the leafy green, one would swear this was a January or February day, overcast with a current windy thirty-eight degrees.  Possibility of snow tonight with a low around freezing, though I don't anticipate any damage.  Probably another record, but records don't seem rare any more.  I would be happier with this if we had gotten a bit more rain, only about a tenth of an inch, but maybe we'll get a decent amount tonight.

    I always appreciate the reports and observations from around the country.

      All of them. The Forest has no Maidenhair ferns that I have yet found, but there's another wild place about 7 miles down the road that has them in spades. They seem to like dark places where there's a drippy moisture year round.

      Snow seems so foreign now. We had almost none this year, not enough to remember, anyways.

      Yes, hearing about what's happening in distant places brings a larger context to the whole. We can get so caught up in our own places sometimes and it's sweet to ponder the larger picture.

      Nice to have your voice here, too.

      I came for the politics and stayed for the science.
