Thanks Wagger and Dawn,they are a lovely colour aren't they :-)
No don't have a stumpery Dawn, do you? or is it something you're thinking about for your extra piece of land:-)this is planted in a partly shady spot beside the pond.

Thanks for the welcome, I came across this site by accident and I can't believe what a great idea it is. I am in my household the only gardener (well that's being optimistic!) so it's lovely to think I can communicate with like minded people!!! So much info on here! I also just wanted to say i love, love, love the colour of this fern!

Thankyou Misstee looks quite exotic doesn't it, tough as old boots though:-)
Same here love this site, although can get quite addictive, I'm the only gardener in our house too, although OH does cut the grass and plans where the borders are going,and I plant them, although may be converting him as did catch him last summer watering my daylilies!!!!!,nearly fainted lol, everyones really friendly and helpful on here, look forward to seeing more pictures of your garden as it developes :-)
