Okay, I admit it. I have some catching up to do. Blogging just hasn't been top on the mind lately, but I have snapped a few photos now again, so let me post of few of those.
Last week, we had a couple of really dewy mornings - cool and damp. I noticed riding around town that the Mexican feathergrass plants - which are growing new green clumps - all had tiny drops of water about an inch from the tips of their leaves. They all looked like jeweled chandeliers bursting forth from the brown wintery ground. I captured the phenomenon on one of the plants in my front garden.
The front sedges (Carex retroflexa var. texensis) are in full bloom, and have grown quite a bit since we planted them in October. I'm always professing my love for these sedges, but I tell ya, they are great.
Here's a photo of these sedges just after planting in December:
Speaking of sedges, they are forming a great backdrop out back for the spring blooming peach tree. Gorgeous and very Zen, I think.
