Symbolism of Ferns

The fern in Christian iconography is a symbol of the life and humility of the hermit because ferns live in shaded, half-hidden locations

The fern is also associated with magic, fascination, confidence, shelter, discretion, reverie and a secret bond of love.

Here are more pictures of ferns from in and around the Garden Brae

I love the fern shots.They are fascinating as the fronds unfurl. Ferns add such a lush atmosphere to the garden.
