As tall as the grass grows...

My green and white grass is so beautiful right now. It is also the tallest and biggest it has ever been! This is not really a very good reference picture, but here it is after I planted it in 2008:

If you can get past my monster sweet potato vines (that was during my "plant anything and see how it grows" phase), you can see how teeny tiny that grass was. I thought it wouldn't even make it past that first summer and now it is one of my favorite plants!

Gosh, I can NOT get over that huge sweet potato vine!

That summer I bought a flat of probably 20 plants and just planted them all around my yard. It was borderline ridiculous, but I really did get lots of comments on how beautiful it was. I only planted a few this year, mostly because I haven't been able to find it! :o( They are not doing well, mostly because I think something is eating them!

  1. That grass is tall, I like how you did the before and after shot.

    I loved reading your vacation post. It looked amazing. I Especially loved all the wildlife photos, the bison were too cool.
