Ornamental Grass


Shirl, and Layanee are posting on ornamental grasses this weekend and inviting others to join in the fun. I posted on July 30 about my grasses but very few of them were blooming at that time.
It is very breezy and sometimes downright windy where I live and I love to watch the grasses sway in the breeze.
Since my post in July, I have added three more grasses to my collection, so now I've got twenty-eight.

28?! I have one, ONE!

I need an intervention, clearly. Or maybe you do? LOL

Carol, you have to remember that my yard backs up to an ugly playground area and the kids walk and ride bicycles through my yard. It's called desperation. Then again, maybe I do need intervention.

Robin: Love your photos and the one's from the winter. It is 70 here at 10:17 p.m. which is not common in Sept. and your grass photos from winter really cooled me down! I am adding you to my blog list!

I'll bet your 28 grasses do give you good screening from the playground. I love to look closely at those seedheads.

Layanee, Thanks for the compliment and for adding me to your blog list.

Pam, the grasses do provide screening and they also provide a visual resting place. I used to gaze past my yard and see only the ugly playground. Now my eyes tend to focus on the beauty in my own yard.

What a good idea -the swaying motion in the wind would blur the background, I guess? I looked at the other post, too, Robin, and remembered how my Illinois miscanthus were tied into gigantic sheaves with red ribbons for holiday decorations - it also kept them upright, which was a plus.

Nice grasses...what is that first one called? I love it's light color.

Connie, I think it is called maiden grass.
