THIS IS NOT GRASS - SAGINA SUBULATA?


Irish Moss
(Sagina Subulata)
Despite its distance from Ireland
- I think she's right.

I could live with this on my wall, if I had a wall. It's very relaxing for some reason I can't really explain.

Looks like grass. I'm sure you'll reveal the truth. I keep thinking of all the things I've dropped down drains! Enjoy the sunshine today.

Very interesting!

Grass or not I like this picture!

Sorry I haven't been by for a while, I've been out of town on a photo excursion. Enjoyed your recent posts and happy to see that you are keeping up and keeping it interesting.

Well I would have guessed grass! I like the textures in this.

Adrian - isn't it interesting how some images evoke emotions which don't have any obvious connection with the contents? I'm glad you find this photo relaxing and that you would put it on your wall.

Hermes - While I knew this plant isn't grass when I took the photo, I had no idea what it is so I had no secret to reveal - just ignorance. However, Celia at Purple Podded Peas

suggested a couple of possibilities and, I think now, it is Sagina Subulata (Irish Moss).

Hello Luis. I like the ambiguous 'interesting'!

Glad you like the 'Not Grass' photo, Blogitse.

Hello Scott. I was looking at your very dramatic photos yesterday, when something happened which meant I didn't comment. (Can't remember now whether something like the phone intervened or my computer went on strike (as it does, sometimes) - but . . . you must be very proud of your recent crop of landscapes! Wonderful.

Hello T.Becque and Faye. You both mention texture. It was the texture of this plant which interested me first. If it had been growing on downland, I might well have ignored it, assuming it was grass close cropped by rabbits. But in a road . . .
