I am not sure what they are but they seem to grow all over my housing division as little ferns. It may be good to note they mainly grow under the planted small hedges. The reason i ask is because when I have been taking my dog out on walks, he can not seem to keep himself from stopping at every one to start chowing down on their leaves. I want to make sure they are not bad for him and possibly learn a little bit about what grows in the local area in the process.
