DAY 165 (17 SEPTEMBER) – Pampas grass (Cortaderia selloana) (Farnham)
Well, well. Who would have thought? According to various media reports from 2017, sales of pampas grass plummeted from the mid-noughties (or should that be naughties) because it became associated with swingers. The theory was it was planted out at the front as a signal to others of the same persuasion to … well, knock on the door I suppose.
Less surprising is that it’s native to the southern part of South America, notably the Pampas region.
Anyway, just in case, I’m not revealing the address of the nice cottage behind this golden display against the blue sky.
