Dressing Up Ditches with Feathery Grasses


Along these parts during late summer, some roadside ditches explode with feathery grasses. Yesterday afternoon this stand of over six-foot-tall grasses formed the south wall along a country road. Sometimes you discover an empty car parked nearby with people cutting bunches of these white topped grasses for some decorative purpose. At quick glance these cotton colored runs look like snow drifts but thankfully that thought is generally two or three months away.
