G...

...is for Grass



Either love it or hate it, it is the most widespread plant type in the world.  We don't have any in our garden as we didn't want to have to mow it and wanted the space to grow veggies, but it creeps in from the gardens either side.  I rather like the look of grass when it is flower although of course if I let it get to this stage in my garden it leads to more weeding for me, such is a gardeners dilemma.  I am also not a fan of neatly manicured lawns (I wrote of this once before), they are a barren monoculture which don't help the wildlife so if you have grass full of daisies and moss be proud of it!

Once again joining in with the Alphabet Photography Project.

  1. Every year we let part of the garden go to meadow and cut paths through it. One of my favourite things to do is to sit on one of the paths and watch the insects. The grass seed heads make the whole scene slightly blurry. So I'm on the side of love it! #AlphabetPhoto

  2. We have a field we let flower and cut paths through. So nice to sit out there see what comes to visit us.

  3. I love grass! My fave is bamboo. They are so resilient to any weather and always makes an open area more ... organic =) #AlphabetPhoto

  5. Beautiful shot. I agree that natural is better, unfortunately I live in 'stepford wives' type suburb where the neighbours definitely would not agree!

  6. What a fabulous capture. I'd not normally think of grass like this but we waded through a field of tall grass very recently - so different to the grass we have in the garden. Thank you so much for sharing and joining in #alphabetphoto

  7. I don't like mowed grass either, it just doesn't feel natural!

  8. I love grass :) I miss walking through it barefoot or rolling through the really long stuff. Why don't we do this as adults any more?
