Yorkshire Fog After The Rain I have always loved this grass which covers the local fields. It ripples like waves on a calm ocean when the wind blows through it.

Thank you for your comment, Miriam 🙂 LikeLike Reply You are not alone. We have a lot of wild grasses that sway in the wind here on the Prairie. I absolutely love to watch them. Okay, I also take photographs… but I’m sure you knew that 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I love wild grasses. There are so many different ones to enjoy but they are often overlooked.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I am touched by the hay-fever, too, but luckily and thankfully just a little. When I took these they were damped down some after the rains, which helped 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I too love grasses as they gracefully dance in the winds. Great shots, Pete!! 🌹 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you, Amy 🙂 Indeed they do dance as you say! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I don’t think many people realise just how many grasses there are. These pink tinted ones are just lovely! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply In the past I have found trying to isolate grasses ad then trying to identify them quite a challenge. There are indeed so many. Then you have your sedges and rushes, all beautiful and interesting in their own individual ways. I may do a project on them this summer, but like always, time is is such a factor 🙂 Thank you, Jude. They are probably my no.1 favourite of the grasses because of that rosy pink 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’ll look forward to a grasses project if you do it! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you, Jude 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person I love the various grasses also……for that very same reason. There are many used in the formal Landscaping along the river near my home and I love the way the wind blows one row one way and the others the opposite, making a sort of zig-zag effect. Can be hard to photograph though. Same with the dying sun catching each seed head and turning it into a field of golden lights. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Beautifully scribed, Vicki 🙂 They can be quite a challenge to photo, and yet just being amongst them as the wind blows, all moving around you, and listening to them whisper is really quite something. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This grassy type of Yorkshire Fog I like, though I didn’t know it was called that. The other type, coming from Yorkshire, I’ve seen enough of this week, as early June has been so awful. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Same here with the rain and dull weather. Made up for for the dry April and May, I think. I just hope it picks as I have a few days off work and want to get out! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Your thoughts ... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
