The object of my affection can change my complexion from white to rosy red
Anytime she holds my hand, tells me that she’s mine*
The object of our affection is the perennial in our zone 7 grass, Muhlenbergia capillaris, whose opening for the season can be seen by clicking here-Muhly Grass Grand Opening. That was the warm up, the appetizer, the opener if you will. The driveway mass planting of pink muhly grass featured in this post is the entree, the headliner, the piece de resistance, the big kahuna, da bomb, the MONEY.
*Written by Pinky Tomlin. He came to national attention while attending the University of Oklahoma. He submitted his original composition, “The Object of My Affection,” to orchestra leader Jimmie Grier, who accepted it and asked Tomlin himself to introduce it to the public. Tomlin had written the song for O.U. coed Joanne Alcorn of Ponca City, Oklahoma, whom he would later marry.
