Tempting the ferny fates

meadowI was going to write the French word for bracken – fougere – but couldn’t find the button to do the accent on the e.  Never mind.

I had a second go at the bracken in the big meadow yesterday. And I hope that this will be it for the year.

Folklore says that if you can cut the heads off the bracken twice when they pop up in spring you won’t get them again.  We shall see.
