    I enjoy grasses – in the absence of flowers I have a collection of grasses and seed heads in a vase and they look surprisingly attractive.

  2. Joanne says:

    I love this! The grass is both delicate and robust at the same time. Perhaps the suggestion of future grass plants growing from the feathery seed-like nodes – if that is how it multiplies – implies strength?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Joanne. The flowers of grass are subtle, the female part is the feathery white and the rusty stamens hold the male pollen. Something we don’t notice much, but upon closer inspection, it is quite beautiful! πŸ™‚

    So delicate and lovely.

  4. Grass flowers do not get their due. Nice that you highlighted this one, Eliza.

  5. Treah Pichette says:

    I think grass seed heads are among the most beautiful of flowers. πŸ™‚

    Lovely detail – the seeds and the white fluffy bits .

  16. Alice says:

    Makes me want to know more about grasses. Nut grass is interesting, with a little bulb.

  17. Do you know what kind of grass this is?

  18. Adele Brand says:

    Grasses are surprisingly beautiful in their own way. I struggle with identifying most of them though!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Agreed! They are tough to identify, esp. since many are not native, so one can’t narrow the search geographically. This one is Eurasian, introduced as fodder.

  19. Maria says:

    These are so nice and just seeding!

  20. How pretty, I had no idea this was grass until reading the comments, so you can see how green(not) my thumb is, lol. I enjoy learning about flowers and plants from you, Eliza!
