Ferns of the Bog

There are still some green ferns left in the bog even though most of them have died off.

Ferns are fascinating. They don't flower; instead they have tiny back spores that they release into the wind. The spores can be seen as tiny black specks about the size of  poppy seeds on the back of the fronds.

Ferns are ancient plants that have changed very little over the years.
