Sappy, drizzly weather.
The grove that looked so yellow and exhausted only a month ago is putting on new green. When the wind picks up, the culms, especially the bendy new ones, swirl their manes of foliage and the effect is like a chafed sea surface near a tropical reef: frothy green against the blue drabness of gum and wattle. All quite beautiful.
Moso. Love it.
Quite a few people are linking to this video, as a Christmas highlight. Think I’ll do likewise. I first saw it on the dense but often interesting American Digest.
The kid reminds me of a certain niece of mine in past years. You know who you are.
