Sometimes the best things in life are free

They tell me the best things in life are free. Well, I think Pampas Grass is one of them.

Mum tells me the grass was big in the 70's and they are super easy to grow... kind of a like a weed. Usually I take no notice of what is growing on the side of the road, however lately I have been. I just remember seeing it for the first time and thinking wow they are gorgeous! So I grabbed myself some yesterday and now it is in a big glass jar on my dining table looking pretty fantastic. Wild, free and simple. 

So next time you're out take note of these lovely big green and bushy grasses, and if you are like me and have a pair of secateurs in your glove box do yourself a favour and grab your self some, even if it's just to admire the grass-like foliage and creamy white feathery plumes!
