I forget what this plant is called, but I frequently see it around here.
It has very tiny pretty purple blooms.
I can’t recall if I have shared any photographs of this on the blog before or not.
But if I have, I still don’t know what this is. LOL!
It’s some sort of odd grass-like plant that grows in one spot on the creek bank. I suspect that it is some sort of purchased plant, that maybe got displaced during flooding and belonged to someone up the creek from us… maybe. That is totally a guess. But it doesn’t look like anything native that I’ve ever seen around here.
This is what it looks like sprouting up:
And this is a stick of it left over from last season:
It stays green months after a stalk has broken off. And during the summer it has stripes. My daughter says that she thinks it looks like something out of Dr. Suess, and I think she’s right. Although you wouldn’t think so by the two photos I am sharing here. I need to try to get some of it, during it’s more colorful stage.
If anyone knows what it is, please let me know. Thanks!
Daffodil (Easter Lily)
I had a hard time photographing the Daffodils this year. I’m not able to walk off the hill anymore, so I don’t get down there as often as I would like. This day it was already evening, and I was loosing light, by the time I could get there. Then I couldn’t really navigate the steep bank to get the shots I wanted. So I didn’t get great pictures. But I liked this one. It makes a nice, relaxing desktop background.
A larger version of this photograph is now my current desktop background on my computer. I have a few more from today that I will post soon.
Update: I chose an altered version of this photo, for participation in The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. The topic for this week was “Distorted”. So I played around with this photo and posted the “distorted” version on my other blog. You can view it if you like, by clicking here.
