Did you know that grasses have flowers?  Oh yes, they are there, hanging like little bells.

But you have to look closely for them…

Closer…

Ah, there now.

This is sideoats grama, the state grass of Texas.  It’s my favorite prairie grass — shhhh, don’t tell the other grasses!  I even named this blog after it. Love that coral-pink color, it’s so pretty.  And the flowers are so dainty and delicate.

I remember the first time I saw grass flowers — I felt like I made a huge discovery.  Like a whole new world to explore.

Speaking of discoveries, have you seen yesterday’s post? There’s still time to discover all the beautiful little details in Lisa Lenoard’s jewelry and enter the $50 shopping spree, so click on down.

Wishing you a day full of new discoveries,

  1. I did know that grasses get flowers, but I sure didn’t know that they had color to them!  I will be paying lots more attention from now on!   Beautiful pictures, thanks, Lisa!
