Is that a silly question, or what? About this time of the winter season, we all can get a bit of cabin fever, and begin to feel that spring just can’t get here soon enough!   So to hold us over until spring actually arrives on March 20 this year (2014), a little reminder of […]

The Christmas fern keeps its leaves all winter, even if it’s under the snow.   Perhaps, it’s serendipity that the Christmas fern takes center stage for the ‘A Perennial a Week’ series, this time of year.  I just […]
