Blue-eyed Grass – 19 May 2006

One of the wildflowers that I look for every spring is known as blue-eyed grass. Several years ago we found some growing in our wooden flower boxes near the railing of our sundeck.

We had not planted any, and we don’t know how they got started, although I did read that the plants produce small black seeds that may be carried by gusts of wind.

The leaves of the plant look like coarse grass about six to eight inches in height, with very small (less than 1/2 inch in diameter) blue flowers at the tip of each stalk. The flower lasts only one day.

This spring our sundeck flower boxes have more blue-eyed grass blooms than in past years, perhaps due to all the rain we’ve been having lately.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
