The Eastern Bracken Fern is found in the Adirondacks of New York State. It’s a deciduous rhizome that appears in spring, lives and spreads in the summer, looses its fronds in the fall, winters underground and then starts it all again when the earth thaws. This painting shows the fern in early spring.

This variety of rose grows in the woods where we live. They bloom in July in the montane and when they’ve ripend they produce a crimson hip, plump and shiney. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/1000675
Limber Pine – Pinus flexus
The cones shown here are from the Limber Pine. They are shown in an unripened stage, as they mature they’ll turn brown. I found these while walking in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Colorado. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/994785
