Blooming Grasses

Driving home from shopping the other day, I noted how beautiful the grass is right now. It has headed out and standing tall. On closer inspection, I realized it is blooming.

In this arid region bordering the great plains, grass is the native species. I've never really appreciated it in a visual sense before (except in winter - when the various subtle shades of grass colors are a visual feast). I grew up thinking about it as fodder for cattle - having been reared on a cattle ranch.

I am tempted to make a gelatin plate just for making grass prints!
