...baby, can you dig it?!?
Ha roo, it's me, everypup and kit-cat - Zim! This post really isn't about grazing in the grass or digging, but click on that hyperlink under "can you dig it" anyway for some great background music while you read! This post is about grass - the decorative grasses in our landscaping.
This is a Feather Reed Grass.
It's a tall, slender grass.
Further down the brick path are some Dwarf Fountain Grasses.
They stay small and are like puffy, little mounds. They get a poufy seed head that looks soft - almost like Sibe fluff!
Moving along the path, here's a gorgeous Maiden Grass by the entrance to Mom's favorite part of the garden.
It sort of announces that you're at the special entrance or something. Here's a close-up!
Mom (and Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind) love the rich, warm colors in there!
Here's a look at that special part of the garden:
There is another, smaller Maiden Grass, a couple Dwarf Fountain Grasses, and a couple Zebra Grasses! Here's another look at one of the Zebra Grasses:
It's on the "tall, thin" side, like the Feather Reed Grass. Here's a close-up of the "flower":
Let's keep moving! Down at the bottom of the yard is this huge Pampas Grass:
Or as Ammy likes to call it, the Pompous Grass. Ha roo roo roo! It's probably about 7 or 8 feet tall.
Also down at the bottom is another line up of Maiden Grasses:
And sort of in-between them and the Pampas Grass and up a tier is a line-up of more Feather Reed Grasses.
There are some other ornamental grasses in the backyard, but they look really bad and Mom is thinking of pulling them up, come Spring. They're little blue things that have really never taken off. Speaking of taking off, let's go out front!
Here are some Japanese Silver Grasses:
They're a little beat up from the snow and ice and wind, but still provide a good screen from the neighbor's house and driveway. Here's a close-up:
Hey, Aunt Janet! Do you know what else the grasses are used for? Bunny hide-outs!
I know you're in there, Oswald!
Hey, are you sending this picture to Aunt Janet? Tell her "hi" for me. And to send more poppy seeds!
That guy is really getting bold, isn't he?
Anyroo, I hope you enjoyed my Winter Garden Tour! We'd love to see what you all have growing!
