Blue-Eyed Grass

I saw this whimsical Blue-Eyed Grass growing along the banks of the Hatchie River.  Though it has grass-like foliage, it is actually a member of the Iris family.  When each flower finishes blooming, it leaves a small round seed pod which resembles a tear.

  1. Our blue-eyed grass is still in the bud stage, with a tiny trace of blue peeking out. Thanks for sharing what I hope to spot in the coming days. 🙂
