Going to Seed

A close up of the grass seed I was trying to photograph yesterday. I'm not sure if this is in fact grass though. The base of the plant has weed-like leaves that spread out like a dandelion. However the seed looks a lot like some of the grasses around here, which is why I'm uncertain. By the way, the field grass I photographed a few weeks ago is now almost 4ft tall! I can't believe how big things grow out here! And so many different varieties. The thing I liked about this variety is the way it goes to seed, from top to bottom in these little white Saturn rings.

I have bought a few books lately on the trees, shrubs and plants of the PNW. Even with those help-mates I have a tough time identifying what I am looking at. I've gotten to the point where I just look and enjoy their beauty. Your close-up of your post's plant displays the beauty of nature in miniature. Really nice. -- barbara
