      • yes, exactly, but they called them foxtails in Texas… they were not burdock I don’t think, not thistles. They looked like spikes of rowdy wheat – oh well it does not matter….

    • Thanks! Much as I love these grasses, I’d love to have more opportunities with red foxes, beautiful animals. I had a family of them in the woods behind my house years ago, but they were pretty secretive.

  1. These are pretty! These look like a plant that Councils here use as mass plantings on kerbside areas. They sometimes get a purpleish tinge to the heads and feel very soft. It’s a favourite of mine, but I don’t know its name!
    Tom, have the merriest of Christmases. Thanks for stopping by my blog and Liking my pix, which is very much appreciated! See ya soon! :O)
