Not To Walk On, But To Look At

This is the last of the fall ornamental grasses in our area. I don't know what this last one is, does anyone know? Is it even grass? Did it bloom earlier and was it prettier in the spring or summer? It seems they are lasting longer this year than before. Maybe because we've had such a mild Fall. But take a look at the next to last picture. This grass was actually taller than the house!! I'd never seen anything like it! I wonder if it's a very fast growing species or just very old?

"Sing to the Lord with Thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp. He covers the sky with clouds; He supplies the earth with rain and makes the grass grow on the hills. He provides food for the cattle and for the young ravens when they call....the Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." Psalm 147:7

Beautiful grasses, I love these but I have no idea what the last one might be. It looks so soft, almost like feathers. I just planted a Pampas grass but it needs to mature before I get the big fluffy tops.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Our was wonderful but so busy, I'm glad to have things calm down a little.

Ginny, I keep meaning to invite you to join some of the photo memes (like Mellow Yellow Monday, Today's Flowers, etc). Your photos are great and should be seen by more folks. They are fun and a great way to meet other bloggers.
