Frost and Ferns

Last weekend was all frost, snow and blustery winds, and I found the ferns, which had been about 8 or 9 inches high, shriveled to brown and laying on the ground. By yesterday new fiddleheads had not only emerged, they were already several inches high. Such instinctive knowing awes me. If we get another hard frost will they do it again? To see the ferns at a better size just click on the image.
