Nature Notes

Nature Notes

Ever wonder about those cute little ferns that pop out at this time of year? They are licorice ferns and they thrive when deciduous trees lose their leaves and more sunlight reaches bare branches and the ground. Licorice ferns die off in early summer when deciduous leaves return and rains abate.
