ABC Wednesday: S Is For Spore



Before this fern was even a fiddlehead, I have been observing its growth. I'm not ready to venture what species of fern this is yet, but I am halfway to an identification. For now — here is the newly developed spore of this fern. In the second photo you can see the brown fuzz that covers the stalk. This is a fascinating fern and I look forward to posting its life cycle. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.

Thank you for visiting me.

  4. Wonderful shots. The spores are very interesting. I visited a nursery that was known for growing ferns and in their propagation house they had row after row of jars full of spore. It all looked like jars of cimmamon.

  5. I am so glad you are displaying some Emily Dickinson poetry. I studied English Literature and even in high school we were not exposed to American lit., so I have really little knowledge of US poetry. I guess I should make the study of it a summer project!

  11. Very unique photos for today’s post! I definitely need a new camera … but I need a new computer even more. I shared more of what I’ve been learning about Photoshop Elements today in my almost WW at Small Reflections.
    Hugs and blessings,
