Ferns in the foothills — in August! I see them almost every year in March, and one year I saw them in November, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them in the middle of the summer before. It’s usually just too hot and too dry. This has been such a strange year though: incredibly dry all winter and spring, hot really early, and then, once the monsoon season started, tons of rain.
