The Fernery

Now I am hesitating to post this, because it's not a Fernie's World story!  But I wanted to share some photos I took at a local university greenhouse. I'll spare you the PROPER botanical names--mostly so I don't have to look them up right now! So without further ado, behold!  I give you ferns!

Spores on the underside. 

And a coupla non-ferns:
Rubber tree plant. It was because of Wardian cases that rubber became abundant in the
British Empire. It's also what helped to win WWII; all thanks to Dr. Nathanial Bagshaw Ward.
