Travel theme – Grassy

It is said the grass is always greener on the other side, but it’s hard to imagine anything greener than Ireland, like this shot of Witch Mountain in Meath.

Did you know the sugarcane is a perennial grass? Here’s a sweet shot of its fluffy beauty along a roadside in Guatemala.

But grasses don’t always have to be green, for example these grasses from Battery Park and the Highline in New York

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars. – Walt Whitman

The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. – Henry Miller

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    My grandfather, when he was five rode on the stagecoach seat with the driver so he could see over the Prairie grass.

    Grassroots movement started! Or… the green, green grass of home! Mind you… a bit of medicinal grass could put us in an even better frame of mind, or not? 😉

  27. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know
    any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
