Sweetfern, Comptonia peregrina, is neither sweet nor a fern, but is one of my favorite plants. It looks like something the dinosaurs would have walked through, and smells like all the warmest, spiciest, most magical aromas of imagination.
Sweet! Have a great new week.
Thanks, Tammy! Back to rain and gloom today, so I'm especially grateful for yesterday sunshine.
What an amazing photo! So happy to see the robins back here too, although last Thursday they were skidding on the ice when they tried to land.
I miss robins! I got to see a few in CO, when I was back. Such cheery birds, and a sure sign of spring!
I'm pretty worried about them with this snow...I don't know what they can find to eat when the ground is covered or frozen. My feeders have been getting lots of visits from little seed-eating birds, but I don't even know where the robins have been keeping themselves. So glad tomorrow will be warmer!
