I was thinking about ferns the other day. I have seen them in woods and other shady places.  The house ferns are different and need attention paid to them so that they thrive.

I have some pictures of ferns. The first two pictures were taken by Fir0002, Wikipedia Commons.

I was walking by a small man made lake and saw a Lady Mallard duck. She was taking a bath in the lake. I watcher her for about ten minutes. She was very busy with her feathers.
