What a boring subject I hear you say. We take grass so forgranted don't we? In fact we get annoyed when it grows anywhere we don't want it.
But today I had to have several walks with Tess because the farmer was away to his hay. The above two photographs are the six different varieties of grass I found just walking down one side of the paddock. At one time there used to be a large patch of what I call quaking grass, but this seems to have disappeared now. But really these grasses are so pretty and each stem seems to have thousands of seeds, which is, I suppose, the reason they are so invasive. So I shall enjoy the grass while it lasts because before long it will be dying down and then we shall be facing another Winter. And of course, grass makes hay and that is what we are busy doing at the moment!
