Palms and Ferns

Somebody made the Trail a little more passable.  Saw Palmetto branches were cut back and laid on some of the muddy places.

One of the walkways has a new sign.

I missed getting a shot of a Ground Skink as it was just too fast.  But I did get a shot of this anole although he was doing his best to hide on the bark of a Slash Pine tree.

String Ferns were hanging from their home on this Saw Palmetto.

And down by the Creek I found a couple of fiddleheads of the Giant Leather Fern.

Here is a closer view of the fiddlehead – the patterns in Nature never fail to amaze me.

    Hopefully nobody sees those fiddleheads as a snack. But speaking of safety, no doubt that slippery when wet sign will save many lives, and it adds to the trail aesthetic.
