The other day I found some dried fern leaves in my phone book. I had picked them in the fall when we made a trip to Little Cottonwood Canyon. Even though they were sort of stiff, they were quite tough and the leaves did not fall off as I handled them. Using leaves for a resist is an age old technique that results in a classic design that I just don't see enough of. When spring comes, I think I will be paying more attention to the foliage in my garden. Final results and more details tomorrow.
