ornamental grasses

We have just had a really beautiful weekend - warm temps and sunny skies. It was a little on the breezy side, but... Peter (also a Twin Cities blogger) left a comment on my previous post that after this weekend, we might be able to think winter will pass us by. I suppose that won't actually happen, but we can certainly enjoy the days like today that we are given.

I wanted to show you the ornamental grasses. They still aren't turning from green to red, but the seed heads are really pretty. With all the wind we've had the past couple weeks, it's been fun to see the movement in the gardens. All three photos are of miscanthus - sorry, I don't remember the name. (One of my plans for this winter is to dig through files and see if I can come up with names for most of my plants - or even SOME of my plants! So, maybe I can share more information next year.)

How pretty they look with their blonde heads blowing in the winds coming off the water. Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

Hi Kris,
You captured the wind in the grass very well. It looks very graceful.
Enjoy that nice weather! We're supposed to hit high 80's here today!

Kris,
Those grasses sure do look beautiful blowing in the wind.

We are having warm weather, too. We better enjoy it while we can!

Your grasses are lovely. I have a few grasses that a previous homeowner had put in, and it is really something I'd like to use more of.

I can tell what a beautiful day it was. The sun shining and the breeze blowing.
The grass looks like it is dancing.

I went on a little outing with my friend today and saw some of these types of grasses...I'll try to include them in a post tomorrow!

I'm not quite ready to skip winter altogether but let's pare it down to a month or so. Lovely grasses! Poetry in motion!
