    Phew! A day where I don’t have to try and build my knowledge based on John’s identification of the flora and fauna in his photo.

    It’s lovely have been learning all week, but even you have just labeled this grasses, with no further explanation.

    Thanks for the learning and the break!

    • Hi Gil—glad to provide the break. I’m a little less knowledgeable when it comes to grasses. Guess I should get myself a grass guide so I can make your head hurt even on the weekends!

      Cheers, John
