spring hopeful

Just when I’m starting to get tired of all the dirty snow in this urban landscape around me, Polypodium virginianum (or rock polypody) shares spring hopeful with me.  I found this little gem of an evergreen fern on a rock outcrop in Smedly Park… not on any trail, but just visible enough from one to draw me in to take a closer look.  This is a very common fern in southestern Pennsylvania, but it couldn’t be more special to me today.
