Photo by Lulu: "Horse Tails"

Garden of Delights: I like these horsetail reeds. I like anything of that bamboo-ish/reed-ish/vertically spikey flavors of plants. And I like plants that look they might grow on an  alien planet. To my mind, these horsetails meet both criteria. I've got a nice little row of them arrayed around the banana trees on the north side of the yard. Hopefully they'll hold up. I'm soaking them real good: I know they're a water-friendly breed, partial to the edges of ponds and waterways. (And after a good rain, our backyard turns into a pond anyway, so that should work out.)
