For some reason or the other...

This reminded me of the Cast Away WILSON Volleyball.

Now that you mention it, I can kind of see it.

A couple of weeks ago I caught the end of it while flipping through the channels...Hearing him calling out "Wilson! Wilson! I'm sorry..." still gets to me.

I haven't seen it in years, but I always get a little teary-eyed at the end of Dead Poet's Society. "Oh, captain, my captain." ~smile~

I think these are fern fronds.

My first thought was the seedheads of sensitive fern, but then, I decided it didn't look quite right--but they do make good winter interest.

Could be fern fronds...the look like them, but thicker. Great addition what ever it is.

Could be. I'm not that good with ferns (or grasses, sedges, and several others)...my mother used to grow cinnamon fern...but I can only picture it green.

Myself included...

The only green ferns projecting fruiting spore fronds I'm coming up with are these...

Do they appear to be the Cinnamon?
The sensitive leaves appear more web like.

I think it is cinnamon--but I'm not good with fern IDs.

It definitely is not the sensitive fern. I thought that when I first saw the thumbnail pictures in the first post...when I enlarged it, I quickly dismissed that thought.
