Reasons for living!
It sounds crazy but one of the reasons I love Portugal is the variety of grasses. Just on my dog walking route around the block ... after a couple of days rain ... a square metre of pathway has such a rich ecology of plants and insects. And grass.
It's the grasses that bring me so much pleasure ... each one so detailed and so esquisite, with each species so different in shape, colour and texture. All growing bunched up together. I find the sensation of looking at them quite overwhelming. In a different life I would be drawing and recording each one.
