Death Becomes a Desert Garden

grasses are pretty when dormant

I find that gardens can be pretty year round, even during these hot summer days. As the plants go to seed or go dormant, I leave the plants be because their natural sleeping (or dying!) state is beautiful~sometime more interesting than in their living state. Grasses especially. That ball of whacked off grass that people insist on (for some reason) is ugly, ugly, ugly. If you just let the plant do it’s thing, it will grow in and naturally slough off the dead stuff.
