Ferns

I love ferns. They are some of my favorite plants, but for the life of me I can't tell the difference between most of them. Clearly, I am going to have to take pictures of different parts of the plant and at different times of the year to be able to distinguish them all.

(Willard's Woods, 6/17/12 12pm) This is a rather large fern, perhaps 3' tall. It grows along the main gravel path near the North St. entrance along the section with the rock walls on both sides between the pond and the conifer stand.

Onoclea sensibilis (Sensitive Fern) (Lower Vine Brook, 6/17/12 12pm) This was growing next to the path connecting Emerson Rd. with North St.

(Lower Vine Brook, 6/17/12 12pm) A smaller fern, perhaps 1'-2' tall. This was growing next to the path connecting Emerson Rd. with North St.
