My Entry for the Picture This Photography Contest.
Hosted by:

Mexican Feather Grass
Nassella tenuissima.

Other common names for this grass that is native to Chile, Texas,
New Mexico, Mexico, Argentina:  ponytail grass, horsetail grass, horse tail grass,
hair grass, angel hair grass, angelhair grass, finestem needlegrass

This graceful ornamental grass lines most of my pathways now.  The slender,
silvery, nodding panicles emerge above the foliage at this time of year and
respond to the slightest of breezes. Plant it where a westerly setting sun
will catch it like this one, and let the show begin!
A great xeriscape plant.

(This has to be the shortest post in the ESP historical blogging records).
