The best thing about Pteridium aquilinum …

… is when it’s dying off.

Bracken, carcinogenic, toxic to livestock, invasive and dominating, smothering the growth of other plants. At the height of the summer it forms an impenetrable undergrowth.

Yet the autumn bracken changes to rich yellow hues. Super even on a drizzly morning.
