At first there was just one...
But then others started to appear.
I believe this is our native Polypodium glycyrrhiza, aka Licorice fern. This fern goes dormant in the summertime, but reappears with the rains in the fall, it's often seen growing on the branches of trees. The tall metal rectangle is planted with a Holboellia coriacea 'Cathedral Gem'.
It's growing up this piece of expanded metal, but not showing any signs of flowering.
I figured the mossy branch would add an extra-nice bit of green at it's base, the ferns are an unexpected bonus.
