Even the grass in the ditch has its moments of glory.

Very true, Genevieve - such a lovely photo. Sometimes the most beautiful things are right in front of us and we just don't see them...

Usually, it's dry here from July to October, but we've had fairly regular rains this year. I think that's why all the grasses on the roadsides this year have such lush, heavy, colorful heads. I wish I knew grasses better so I could identify this one for y'all. I call it "foxtail", but I don't know if that's correct!

We have some very tall decorative grass (6'+) that just developed it's purple flag like tassels in the first week of October. This seemed to be in a bit of delay from last years splendor which I wrap in bundles to stand tall for the Winter's winds. I cut 4" stubs in the Spring and the pre-tied decoration go out with the next weekly pick-up. :)ken

I would love to get a tall decorative grass to plant on the west side of our shed (a hot dry area.) I need to do some research this winter so I can be ready to start it next spring. Do you know what type of grass you have?

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
