White dew: flocks of birds gather grain (1 of 5)

March 17th, 2009

White dew 11 of 15The front of our house is thick with ferns. When we come up the hill and round the corner, the green fronds are the first thing we see. They are now ever-present in the image of home. Various plants nestle in with the ferns. Weeds especially love to hide in the thick green growth.

The climate here promotes rapid and prolific plant growth. The walkways and paths are easily overwhelmed by such productive activities. Every two weeks Redmond reclaims a section of the yard by clearing away weeds. Each fortnight he fills up the green waste bin.
