The Resurrection Fern Was Resurrected!

(Since, this time of year, there is a lot going on in the garden, around the yard and everywhere outside, I thought I’d add another post earlier in the week that will just be a photo or two, and some comments and/or Scripture. My longer posts will continue to be on Fridays. Let me know what you think.)

Thankfully we had some good rain last week. The Lord blessed us, and we were revived. The resurrection fern in the pecan tree out front also showed its appreciation and greened up nicely.

At the top you see the “dead” picture taken in early May. Since we didn’t have much rain to speak of in May, it looked worse than this before the rain last week.

Here’s the fern the morning after soaking up a real rain the night before. We all felt revived because of the rain.

For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.”  Isaiah 57:15 ESV

  1. I’ve heard of those plants–seen ads for them–but never thought they’d grow wild in North America. (Or did you “paste” it there?)
    We’ve been in Miss. and seen kudzu vine growing over all the trees. do you have it there, too?

    • We just noticed it a few years ago (we can see the tree and fern from our front windows). It must reproduce by seeds or spores in the wind because it’s shown up in several other pecan trees around now.
      Thankfully, we don’t have kudzu over this far in the southeastern part of Georgia. It can sure take over a forest.
