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…
…and this lovely one I spied on Staten Island.
So grab your camera and celebrate the grass growing under your feet. If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Grassy
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Watch out for the next travel theme which will come out next weekend

Let’s start a grassroots movement!
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
I love your grassy close ups! So pretty
I love the way they sound, too, when the wind blows. They’re some of my favourite plants.
Grass is always beautiful!!!
I couldn’t agree more though – Ireland was as green as they come!!
Yes, it’s hard to beat the greens of Ireland, thanks to all that rain! 🙂

Love it, LadyLee – and the Tom Jones song too! 🙂
My grandfather, when he was five rode on the stagecoach seat with the driver so he could see over the Prairie grass.
Oh how wonderful, Scott, I can just picture him. 🙂
That was Kansas near the flint hills about 1890.
Aptly named the tallgrass region, right? I read about the conservation efforts there 🙂 https://www.fws.gov/refuge/flint_hills/partnerships/flint.html
I might suggest ‘Prairie Erth” by William Least Heat Moon – 700 pages about Chase County Kansas. His effort brought about a native grass reserve.
Loved the green of Ireland and it didn’t rain once whilst we were there. 🙂 Beautiful grasses, Ailsa.

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? 😉
