Cottoning to Grass
It was ten years ago yesterday when we found this Eriophorum gracile ("Cottongrass") which had strayed from its usual habitat west of the Divide and established a foothold here. You may recall that it had formed a perfect circle, perhaps imitating the practice of wagon trains crossing these prairies.

Well, the last ten years have seen the circle disintegrate into a random assemblage, but the plants are still here, still looking around and checking out these strange new environs. We'll keep you posted.
