Sensitive Fern (Onoclea sensibilis)is so named because it is the first to whither when we have a frost. Today while hiking around a beaver pond near a friend’s property up in the hills above Bemus Point, I found large patches of Sensitive Fern that had succombed to a frost. I don’t recall it being that cold down here in the valley… Now I’ll have to pay attention to see if the ferns down here are green or brown.
Autumn is here, I guess… Winter can’t be far behind. That makes WinterWoman happy.
