The Giant Redwoods are In Cahoots with the Tree Fern in My Backyard.

This tree fern is hiding a very big surprise!  If you look closely in the center, you will see the surprise is peeking through the fronds.

Hello seeding of a GIANT REDWOOD TREE! 

Your needles are lovely, dense and green.
Three large, tall redwoods exist on the property behind our townhouse in Northern California.  One of them shared a seed or a sprout under a tree fern on our small parcel (30'x30') of land and it went unnoticed until its crown popped out through the fronds. 

Darling now, but this tree has a habit of growing over 350 feet tall...and living 2000 years.

Late Season Watermelon

In California, a late season stroll through the garden will reveal the tenaciousness of Mother Nature.  She will produce until sun and season make it impossible.
