For those that know and love ferns

Since arriving in Oregon, my camera has barely made an appearance. However, DocDufresne and I snapped a few photos during a lovely hike in Tillamook State Forest, where we saw many kinds of ferns including a mystery fern, seen in the first two photos. Anyone know ferns of the Pacific Northwest? I'd love to identify it.

In other news, we've been house hunting, which is both exciting(!!) and a little daunting. Doc and I are both really looking forward to living in Portland, as opposed to the suburbs, where we're temporarily residing. We're excited to (at last!) have room for a garden and still live in an incredibly walkable/bikeable area. Tonight we're taking a second look at a house that may be the one. Wish us luck!!


  1. These are beautiful photos! Fingers crossed on the house!

  2. It sounds like you're starting to get a bit more settled in. That was such a long move! The ferns are gorgeous. I've always loved ferns and haven't had the pleasure of seeing the ones in the northwest.

    P.S. Someone is making a star appearance this week on my blog :)
