Thanks, Hazel, and glad you like the flowers, Marko.

Marty11, Fairy grass is mutant grass from Hell! Or Lachnagrostis filiformis to be precise. A native grass here. You can read about it here.

Below is the worst infestation of it that we've had. This is 3 different areas of my garden , photo's taken yesterday. Every time the wind changes direction it builds up in a different place and it's constantly blowing in off the farms, the forest and the water reserve. All we can do is try and crush and bag any that is near the house and with it so windy all the time it's a full time job. If we got a really good rain on it that might see the end of it, but we'd need inches.
