Blechnum Fern

Next to our front door we have a blechnum fern. Always enjoy seeing the unfurling fronds.

You might notice the bits of ‘fluff’ here: the nymphs (“fluffybums”) of the passion vine hopper are already out and about. I am puzzled how these teeny critters can appear in force on totally new vegetation (i.e. a long distance away from where eggs might have been deposited at the end of the previous season).
