Looking like the swinging doors to your favorite wild west saloon, the pink muhly grass, Muhlenbergia capillaris that graces either side of the entrance to the knot garden says, “Come on in, pardner!”
Let’s back away a bit, to include more of the steps and the members of the pink muhly posse, the Rosa ‘Knockout’ and various Dianthus volunteers that are a springtime color echo to the pinky pink fizziness that comes in fall.
Funny thing about that fall bloom time, it seems to have shifted to a later date. The first story about the pink muhly grass was titled Muhly Grass-See You In September* with a
silly clever tie in to the oldie but goodie song by that name. See the post by clicking here. But the grand opening of pink froth that moves deliciously in the slightest breeze has been rescheduled for October. Here it is, heading down the highway towards November and the pink muhly grass is still not fully opened.
This is the 700th post for Fairegarden. It seems like only yesterday this wonderful journey began. Many thanks, kisses and hugs to you, dear readers for making it such a wonderful experience! ♥
