Timothy Grass

Some of you will know about my wild flower garden which this year is more like a wild grass garden. But the grasses are lovely. I have discovered that most of it is Timothy grass, about a metre high. Though I haven’t been able to find out why is has that name. It has long cylindrical flower heads (more seed heads really) and is good for horses. It gives them shiny coats and is good for digestion. (Not that I’m planning having any horses in my garden.)

Whenever we have good weather I sit out in the garden and it feels like sitting in a field. Even a gentle breeze make the heads sway and the whole effect is most calming. I don’t need to travel to the countryside. I have it here right in my garden. Whenever I need to relax and unwind, a short spell in the garden is all I need.
