A garden without baby tears just isn’t complete. Growing up with baby tears around the pond at my parents house, I’ve always liked them, and in San Jose we planted the shady side of our garden with them, along with ferns, fuschias, and a few other favorites. So we’re doing the same here in Ferndale, and as the name implies, it’s pretty easy to have a fern garden in Ferndale. We bought a bunch of fuschias at the fair this year, so we planted those. A couple of Australian Tree Ferns to start with, and some Bergenia that we transplanted from San Jose were added this week. We lost the Arum that we brought from San Jose, so I’ll have to find some of that again. It is also very obvious in this photo that our house needs a good pressure washing.
