In case you didn’t see enough of tree ferns in my previous post (very predictably titled Tree ferns!), here are some more. These photographs were taken in Australia by Willie. He is currently there for a forestry conference – where he is hearing about, and talking about, and seeing lots of – you guessed it – TREES. I had asked him to take some photographs of things other than trees, but so far most of the photos I’ve seen have been of trees. In this case, what is of interest are the tree ferns (which are not trees) which are seen here growing in their natural habitat amongst some Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) trees. The location is in the mountains north of Melbourne, Victoria in Australia.
I couldn’t pick a favourite photo, so you’re going to see the same tree ferns from different angles!
I think they look much better out “in the wilds” than in a garden. Don’t you?
