Ferns are a familiar sight in our countryside. From the lower sides of mountains, to verges along lanes.
I think this is a bracken fern, although not being an expert I could well be wrong in this assumption.
Here they are opening in the full glare of the early afternoon sun. Soon unfurling to reveal those familiar leaves.
Walking up the slopes of Moel Famau in North Wales as a teenager, I recall threading my way though dense patches of bracken during the summer months. They were nearly as tall as myself!
