I have two photographs of grasses.
Both of them have been called Wiregrass, but here where I am at
the moment, gardeners call only one of these grasses Wiregrass.
The other is called Bahamian Grass, which dominates curbs around
the big churches that have the larger car parks, it's good wherever
kiddies are apt to run around, and it's the grass which I have called
Creeping Grass. The Wiregrass here, is one of those stubborn slow
growers that lives amongst Pine, and has become an increasingly unusual
sight because of its sensitive nature and shady habit. All of
which is a learning experience, and one of the better reasons to leave
Interesting is the Armadillo. A pest to orderliness because of itís digging
habits. I am told It rummages around perennial borders and has a special
dislike for Hosta. Even more
interesting are the ant hills, which I was happy to think of as molehills.
The Moles themselves, I have been assured are not present in these sandy
soils, but I suspect that down here the population of moles have developed a
lifestyle that disguises their
activity somewhere between Armadillo and Ant, and which has obviously
rendered them invisible to the more causal observer.
