Ferns and other greens in WA

Ferns at Penrose State Park, WA.

It's dripping with green right now in western Washington. Ferns and seaweed are great sources of artistic inspiration for me, so here are a few photos I've taken -- for your inspiration.

I love ferns, too and have done several quilts using the fern design. Your quilts are stunning!
