No, No, not the stuff, oh dear, nor being one, just the normal garden variety that gets cut every weekend.
We’ve been through a fairly long session of dry weather, not long enough to be officially be classed as a drought, but long enough to seriously parch the grass. Our lawn was looking a hay coloured brown. Not in a very healthy state.
Not sure exactly how much, but we have had a fair bit of rain over the last week. Today, I went over our grass – twice, I had to raise the blade because the grass had got so long in places.
The reason I’m writing about this is because I don’t recall seeing such a clear demonstration of the durability of grass. It was fascinating.
One of the things I am interested in is microscopy. I thought I would have a look at some grass under the microscope, the only one I am able to use at the moment is a digital one that connects wirelessly to my phone. Now I’m not going to blame my tools, but I can’t quite get it to work very well – the pictures aren’t very good. Given that it’s my first real time use I’m going to say it is definitely me not knowing how to properly use the device.
I need to practice.
