Bill: Fern identification please!!! [dunno]
Is that a maiden hair in first pix upper right hand corner?

I'm with Jillie...ferns are my second favorite....I have several different kinds planted next to my front door nestled around a water fountain and accented with begonias and impatients!

What a combo ferns, cactus, and succulents! [Roll Eyes]

I couldn't find the name tag for the first fern... it's buried somewhere under the snow! [dunno]
It's a Columbine that you see in the top corner of the first photo....
