“Marsh Grass….”


The truth is, I don’t know what it is called or what its proper biological name is. It grows in abundance a few yards from our house, in an low area that used to be water at high tide, but it seems that over the years the sediment has increased so much that now the Gulf water reaches there only when the tide is extremely high. At one time the tides washed freely through this area, and then a road was built, and the culvert under the road is in no way big enough to help the water flush out the low lying mudflats.
When I walk by in the morning, the sun hits the area from the left side and the grass becomes this wonderful shimmering and undulating surface. It also has a lovely sweet smell to it.
