CAN YOU SPOT THE DIFFERENCE? - fern edition

Although I have transplanted many ferns onto my cottage property I have focused alongside the path it became apparent to me just last year how much of a need for them there was closer to the lawn, where guests spend most of their time.  

The evergreen shrubs had not taken off like I had planned, so it was time to accept it and move on and infill with native ferns.

 How many of the 10-12 new plants can you spot in this photo?


A different perspective helps to shed light on the gaps.

It certainly demonstrates how easy it is for a landscape to gobble up plants by the dozen and still have room for more.

    1. Eileen you make a good point, he wood ferns are dark green with non of the 'yellowishness' of the ostrich ferns, which makes for a nice contrast.

    1. I'll be putting in a patch of about 50 sq. feet in the front. I'll be sure to post the result.
