Evergreen Native Ferns

On my strolls over the years I have noticed that there are two ferns that remain evergreen in our woods during the winter. I know a fern when I see one, and that's about it. I thought it was about time I taught myself a bit more. Join me as I try to identify these two ferns.

There is probably a machine that does what I did today, and does it faster, and maybe even does it better. But I don't know where I would find that machine, and even if I did, I probably wouldn't be able to afford it, not even to rent it. So it doesn't make any difference, except if I had done it with a machine, no one would think I was crazy. But I had a Vision of what I wanted to see come spring, and I was determined.
