Barn Grass
Barn Grass

I’m so often struck by the beauty of the grasses, often so tail, as they wave in the sunlight, against the setting sun or even early in the morning as you see in this older post. Although technically not a flower, I suppose, I couldn’t resist catching this in its lovely mauve colouring to share with you today. As always, it’s worth a closer look at something we take for granted, to see the delicate beauty that is in plain sight for us, every day. A Flower a Day #311  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-)

  1. The oxford dictionary defines “flower” as the seed bearing part of a plant, so I think this qualifies very nicely as a flower. Isn’t it beautiful, the colour pleasing? Wouldn’t you include it as part of a floral display in a vase or container. My answer to these questions is decidedly yes. This is a grass flower, known as a floret and they grow in spikelets. How cute is that?! and most definitely a flower – as sweet and lovely as any garden variety. Thank you, Ellie, for a different tack today.

    1. I guess this spikelet of florets of grass fits that bill just about to a T, thanks Janet! And yes, I most definitely would include it in a floral display. Different, but not out of place, for sure. Thanks again, Janet!

  2. Thanks Ellie. It is lovely. I love to look at the grass fields when the wind is blowing. The way it ripples reminds you of the ocean. That grass is a lovely colour. Thanks again for sharing
