Purple and Silver
Well, now I have to confess, as you can see, that I have not mowed the lawn since coming home from hiking. No one cares, out here in the country, except me. But I can justify it by finding beauty in the weeds. This is some kind of witch grass. I'm not going to get more specific than that, 'cause I "don't do" grass. (I'll stick to sedges for complicated IDs.) It's fluffy and purple. But look what happens to it in the early sunlight with dew on it...
Now it is magical- a treasure of silver.
Maybe it is precious, sparkling gems, with crystal spikes.
