This early Spring season has been interesting. First with 80-something degree days, and now with more normal 60 degree temperatures. If anything, the warm weather was a great reminder of how fun running can be in the summer. It’s nice to run without a shirt on. The warmth also brought some early plant growth, and I went out on the trails at work the other day to see what was growing. The first picture is of a fiddlehead fern. More specifically, it is a Christmas Fern (Polystichum acrostichoides).
