It was a warm day here in Southwest Missouri and just eight days until Christmas. Looking for something green to plant as a decoration for a holiday brunch I walked by an "Autumn Fern" that was still lush, green, and looking prime. The last couple of weeks I have been building mini rock patios in several papercrete containers in anticipation of springtime plantings. As I carried the fern up the hill from the greenhouse I thought of the containers with the patios and it did not take long to match the plant with the planter. While the fern is a little disproportionate in size to a miniature garden it does fill the bill for something eye catching in combination with the smallness of everything else in the combo. I will file this in my bag of ideas for future presentations.
