Mossy-Ferny Things

I love mossy-ferny things in the garden, but this time of year they are few and far between in our SJC garden due to the lack of rain. I have to create little vignettes in shady spots to satisfy my cravings for a woodland feel, like this faux-faux bois birdbath. Once the rainy weather returns (hopefully) in a couple months the mosses and ferns will return naturally to some of the shady spots for the season.

I love how this looks, a great idea if you don't have any shady spots in flower beds to plant in.

Hi Sheila, love that chartreussey shade of the fern. Yeah for faux planters...less pain for our backs!

Mosses and ferns are nice. With eastern N. Carolina being temperate forest they grow year round here under the shade of the pine tree woods.

That is really beautiful! I like how you turned the birdbath into a planter! It looks great!
