What a pretty spray of grassy seeds. I'd go for fascinating.

Playful and spirited... oh, yes! Whatever is it, I like it too! That last photo, it has a look of being a crazy water sprinkler! Happy Week, Elk :o) ((HUGS))

wist-full: Filled with wist. I think that is what those tiny little seed things are called, imaginatively speaking.

It doesn't need a name. After all...what's in a name? It's so ethereal!

Joie Moring said...

or bad hair day. maybe we bloggers could come up with a game...'who looks most like their own potted plant?' mine might look a little like a stump with a fern growing out of it, but hey...could be fun! ;)

kath said...

It is obviously the suvvy plant - one of Margie's kids used to say "suvvy" instead of fuzzy. I can't wait to get back to the garden centres but it will be a few months yet!
