It was a beautiful day. We took a picnic lunch, listened to talks about the resident buffalo herd and took a short hike. I also purchased a t-shirt and the following book at the gift shop.
I bought the book because I've become fascinated by the many species of grasses I've found growing on our land. If you recall, a few weeks ago, I wrote an entry about Little Bluestem grass
However, in the fall, most of the wildflowers are gone and the grasses begin to send up seed stalks. I took several pictures of various grasses this fall. Unfortunately, I didn't buy the grass book in time to be able to identify most of them. But here are the pictures I took.
I know a lot of folks who want immaculate lawns and cannot stand it if their grass gets over 2 inches tall. I'm happy to say that I'm not one of those folks! I love the bio-diversity of the small prairie that we have created around our house.
