209/366: albino asparagus fern

The asparagus fern growing on the eastern side of the backyard originally came through under the fence from the neighbour’s garden. I like the delicate lacy fronds, although the thorns it carries are a dramatic contrast.

It grew well, particularly because we didn’t plant it ourselves. It crept up into the trusses of the pergola, which necessitated cutting it back. One piece that I didn’t pull down has now dried and faded to a beautiful creamy colour, hence the albino title, which complements the colour of the shadecloth and timber it is surrounded by.
