Pam of Digging suggests that we post pictures of the non-flowering features in our gardens as a follow-up to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day: she reminds us to look for examples of foliage, bark or berries that are as worthy of our attention as the blooms we celebrate the 15th of each month. Since I spent the morning working at the Harris County Master Gardeners' Fruit Tree Sale, and the afternoon recovering from being out in chilly damp weather, I only have one picture to offer. The graceful foliage of Nassella tenuissima, Mexican Feather Grass, sailed through the recent cold weather and continues to add movement to the garden, if not a lot of color. That's OK, it blends in beautifully with the other browns and tans that are so prevalent right now!
BTW, I have been meaning to ask you-how and when do we sow the poppy seeds you gave us. Is it alright to start them indoors or should theu be sown directly. I would love to have a whole drift of them. :)
