Since ferns are one of my favorite plants, it is nice that they grow so abundantly in the Robson Valley. The photo shows a patch of waist-high ferns that grow along the dam of my pond. They are actually growing on my neighbor’s land, and I was a bit distressed when I saw him laying out a roadway down to a field that would have run right through the ferns. Because the area where the ferns grow is quite damp and soggy, I was fortunately able to persuade him to jog his road to higher and firmer ground, thus saving the ferns.
