Pampas Grass.

Today I sighted this stand of Pampas Grass.

At least that is what I hope it is called.

Pampas always looks good on someone else’s place.

It makes a good wind break here, but is also known as invasive,

noxious and not an agricultural problem because

livestock will eat the young plants

depending on which web site you visit.

Considering African elephants are known to carry

seeds of the trees they eat and spread them

via their droppings I would rather not have any

livestock I owned eating pampas for breakfast.


Hope you enjoyed.

Floral Friday17-1703-Murano


Floral Friday Challenge.


Our first wet day of our trip

caught up with us in Venice…

where we were destined to take cruise…

across the Venetian Lagoon to Murano.

In Murano’s windows we found quite a variety of flowers…

adding colour to a wet dreary day.

This was by far my favourite.

I should also add that while I described the day

as wet and dreary,

I was referring to the weather.

We had a wonderful lunch among great company

at one of Murano’s restaurants.
