By far, the most interesting things in my garden these days are my ornamental grasses. I have a lot of them because they are so low maintenance and they add great texture to the garden— in summer, fall and winter.

We have at least a dozen different varieties here at our house, and I’m always looking to expand my little “collection.” We got a few new ones this past spring, and I was curious to see if I would like them as much as the others come winter. I certainly do. Here are a few pictures of some of my favorites.
