Tufts of grass undulate and hopefully hold tasty morsels for a hungry coyote. I love how this looks soft yet scratchy at the same time.
First grass, then rocks and now grass with rocks! I know the owner of this garden meant for the rocks to suppress the weeds, but the harsh edges of the rocks are softened by the thin blades of grass and create layers to the surface. Serendipity.
How funny to have come across this composition of gravel and Fescue a week later at Osmosis spa in Freestone. It's the varying sizes of grasses that really captured my attention, spreading as if they were a contagious condition.
This fuzzy fence at the Pierce Point Ranch in Pt. Reyes combines two of my favorite textures: weathered wood with the ruffled softness of mosses and lichens. Here's a detail.
I love the juxtaposition of the deep, clear lines of wood grain and the tiny details of the different plants growing on it. The closer you get to look at it, the more you see. It also doesn't hurt that it's following my favorite new color palette that I can only describe as faded dull.
