Retrospective (10/6)

Patch #264 Yellow indiangrass 


Original Post 

Some days are just perfect for picture walking, which is why I'm determined to find a way to record that in One Hill Country Year. Someday, somehow.

Today it was enough to capture the magic of early morning sun on yucca ...





Light caught in the beautiful, but invasive King Ranch bluestem (http://www.texasinvasives.org/plant_database/detail.php?symbol=BOISS), which is as tall as it's ever been since we moved here six years ago. But there, rising above it, the unmistakeable plumes of Indiangrass (https://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=SONU2) ...


under a setting moon ...


which brought to mind our last night in St Louis when two year old Jace spotted the thinnest sliver of moon in the twilight. He is a moon-lover, much to my delight. Here's a screen shot of a recent FaceTime call with Jace rising above the couch in a game of peek-a-boo ...


Gotta love it!

Later, as I worked out, my eye caught on this thrifted cloth ...


The camera is far too kind, as it looks like nothing so much as an unfortunate meeting of Gulden's and French's mustards, with a bit of Grey Poupon thrown in for good measure. But a closer look revealed this ...


An Indiangrass patch is surely in my future ...

It takes a discerning eye to find the grass in a pile of mustard. I look forward to your patch.

Yes she is, thank you ... and much better at holding a pose than some of the other flora and fauna
