An uninvited, but welcome guest found its way into the garden

Polypodium cambricum

The southern polypody or Welsh polypody, is a species of fern in the family Polypodiaceae, native to southern and western Europe. It is a spreading, terrestrial fern growing to 60 cm tall, with pinnate fronds. The sori are yellow in winter.
The specific epithet cambricum means "Welsh", from the Latinized form of Cymru, the Welsh name for Wales.
