a sweet grass of May







I first tasted this grass when walking with teenybuffalo one May a few years ago. It tastes like a combination of vanilla and the scent of a mown hayfield. I love it. And each year since, I enjoy it, and then it fades from my mind until the following May, when I see it, remember, and am delighted anew.

one of my favorite grasses

It is in bloom right now. Tiny tiny flowers.

this grass tastes like vanilla

Thanks--I love how delicate and small it is. And hairy!

For the longest time I've wanted to meet vanilla grass. This doesn't look like that picture, but whether it's the same grass or something else, I pine for it. :)

I checked Google images, using that grass's Latin name (because the Wikipedia picture was a bit hard to parse), but alas, no--a different grass. I would love to see/taste that one!

This is a pretty small grass... I tried identifying it once, but lost steam before I accomplished my purpose.

There are lot of grasses. Oh, for an agrostologist!

That's lovely! I wish I could breathe in those fragrances, too. :)

If only the flavor would keep, I could pop some in an envelope to you...
