As the growing season comes to a close, the backyard is looking somewhat scraggly. One exception is the view of the rain garden.
The pink muhly gass (Muhlenbergia capillaris) is especially striking, and makes a much bolder statement than when it first bloomed in October 2010. It’s been providing a splash of pink for about three weeks now, and it brightens my mood every time I see it. Here’s hoping it stays around a bit longer.
