faded ferns

I am the first to admit I am a lazy gardener. I know all about cleaning up the garden at the end of the season – clipping, trimming, raking, and such. But I never do. And sometimes my reward is treasures like this. This lovely fern spent autumn fading to a soft white. How striking against the browns of windblown oak leaves! The lacy little leaves are so lovely and defined.
