Wild Fuzzies

Well, I never claimed that I was in any shape or form a botanist. My understanding of flowers and plant life extends to the following vocabulary: "Oh, I like that color." "That iris is beautiful." "That might go good there."
 That's about it. Really. All kidding aside. 
I'm sure they are not 'wild' in the true sense of the word, and for all I know, in the morphology of plants, there's probably no real technical term entitled 'fuzzies'. Although I must add at this point, that I did experienced the 'warm fuzzies' once, in another life.
And I do remember, that at one point in my science study somewhere learned, I think, that there is some sort of plant kingdom somewhere or somehow.
Maybe that's where those crazy hobbits live. 
Then again, I might be way off the mark here.
I might just want to stick with fuzzies.
Fuzzies, they are!


  1. I think the term, Fuzzies, sounds quite professional.

  2. I can't think of a better term for what you've photographed, Birdman. What I'm wondering is do these warm fuzzies stick to you if you come in close contact?

  3. Had a biologist friend tell me once years ago that these are South American grasses imported to be used as ornamental landscape plants. He was concerned that they could become invasive and problematic in our environment. But I'm no expert either.

  4. i love grasses - native or ornamental. fuzzy, too. :)

  5. Yep, I agree. Definitely "fuzzies".

  6. Your botanic vocabulary is almost identical to mine!

  7. Fuzzy perhaps, but this is a lovely photo.

  8. I like the term 'fuzzies'. I think it fits the flowers of a certain Ornamental Grass. MB
