feathers November skyline:
shifts focus from grey.
You see, I never would have appreciated grass, wildflowers, or so-called weeds when I was a younger person. But now, as an adult, I think it’s quite beautiful, photo and the words to feather it as well. Love it, Sarah . . . plus seeing the book cover teaser on the blog reminds me how I’m so excited for you and Desiccation!

Thank you, so much, Leigh:-) What’s interesting with many plants (pampas grass included) that they can be considered weeds in their native countries but something special and ornamental in other parts of the world. Am so touched that you’re excited for me and Desiccation! I’m getting very impatient waiting for the proof copy, which was dispatched from the US on October 27. There’s nothing more I can do until it arrives and I’ve checked it through. Have finished preparing my eBook version in MS Word, but can’t convert it to html until I’m sure there is nothing amiss with the print version, such as sneaky typos. By the way, I’ve called you by your Leigh W-S name rather than Leigh W. Smith in the acknowledgements, but if you’d prefer I use the latter, I will change it if I find other things to revise.
So that is what it is called!!! I keep taking pictures of them but could not find what they were called. I love when they have a blanket of snow on them… I’m sure you’ll be seeing some in the next few months from me!
It originates from South America, where it grows in great abundance. I agree, it does look very pretty in the snow — not that we had more than one tiny dusting of snow last year where I live. In fact, I’m not sure we had it the year before either.
Grose profusely here and really? None?
I live right down on the SE coast in a bit of a micro-climate, which I guess is the reason why people come here on holiday when they can’t afford to go abroad! I have a palm tree in my garden and a rose that has just come into bloom. My begonias are also producing new flowers. No frosts yet.
Oh! Lucky you!!!
Sheesh… just saw my response… grows and not grose!!! 😉
Lovely feathery grasses and beautiful haiku, Sarah. Pampas Grass used to be everywhere in Johannesburg, including on the disused mine dumps, but not any more, since it was declared a noxious weed many years ago.
I know it seeds everywhere, Sylvia, left to it’s own devices, which is why we don’t have it in our garden but just enjoy it in the local park where there are paid gardeners to keep it under control!
Beautiful. All of it.
Thank you, David 🙂
So beautiful, I love Pampas Grass, so pretty, and matches your haiku perfectly 🙂 xxxx
Thank you, dear Sherri 🙂 xxxx
how wonderful- the pampas looks enormous and exotic. Beautiful Haiku and we have some tropical plants here on the mild west coast too but lately grey rain!! – which makes me sad!! 😦
Thank you, Cybele 🙂 I’m glad you liked the haiku and the pampas. We have seemingly never-ending grey at the moment, too. It’s very tiring and gloomy D:
oh tell me about it!! and congratz on the book- it’s on my list!
