In the Deep Woods Follow Me

One of my goals this year is to spend more time out in  nature..I mean we live so close to it here in Eugene ..So, I've been to Alsea Falls a couple of times and Mt Pisquah and out to Coyote Spencer Wetlands, a piece of land recently purchased by Mckenzie River Trust.  And, you know, the more time you spend outside, the more wonderful things you experience.  It's just the law of averages.  I've seen purple butterflies and a hummingbird's nest already this year plus tons of beautiful wildflowers....all of which has re-awakened the amateur naturalist in me..... 

I have been geeking out with plant I.D

  Like this is the year I'm really going to learn my ferns. So far I'm pretty confident about sword, licorice, deer, & maidenhair. And I'm learning the difference between bracken and lady ferns. (Isn't that just a great name, "lady fern"? Don't you just love her already?)  Stay tuned for more dispatches from the world of ferns.
