March 28

It's quite cold but sunny here today. Bob and I both have the weekend off, although I ended up going in to do some paperwork this afternoon. Bob did a lot of work, including working on a night stand for Heather and helping her prime her room. He also cut down our fountain grass in the back yard. These plumes stay throughout the winter but need to be cut down so the new growth can come through.
I got this picture before he cut them. I thought they looked like they were almost glowing in the sun! Soon there will be new growth coming up.

Wish I had you in my pocket to help me take pictures. It is not one of my gifts, but it certainly is yours!!

This is such a neat plant. I don't think I've ever seen one like it. It looks like balls of yarn!

If they wouldn't blow around the house, they would make an unusual flower arrangement.
