The Morris Arboretum Fernery

One of the best parts of the arboretum is the fernery. I'd never heard of such a thing.

Nor imagined that there could be such an incredible variety of ferns.

It brought to mind the Pope's recent encyclical, "Each year sees the disappearance of thousands of plant and animal species which we will never know, which our children will never see, because they have been lost for ever. The great majority become extinct for reasons related to human activity. Because of us, thousands of species will no longer give glory to God by their very existence, nor convey their message to us. We have no such right."

These clearly give glory to God by their very existence.
