Horsetails






















What a difference a day makes. Yesterday warm and sunny, today cold and wet. No good complaining this is typical Northumbrian weather. It's best just to get out there whatever the weather. I decided to take a few shots of ferns in the woods today. The top shot is Great horsetail. It has a scattered distribution here as it is at it's northern limit. Last year some of these plants were almost two metres in height. The picture below it is Wood horsetail; much smaller but more elegant. below that is two common woodland ferns in the Borough woods; Narrow buckler and scaley male fern. The picture of Bennyboy yesterday finding it a bit warm in the garden and today looking damp and miserable.
