post [172] of 365

So we have this stuff growing in our backyard. Its sort of like bamboo and its sort of like pampas grass. But we cut it down (or the boys break it off) every fall/winter/early spring. And every summer it grows up to 10 feet tall. But it very dense and so it blocks in our backyard really well. The boys and their friends can make forts within it or use the dried out stalks for more forts or sword fights or to keep girls away (which happened to make the mother of said girl very angry… sorry, the boys play rough!).

I didn’t crouch down very low to take this, its just really tall. I wanted to get a towering feeling about it, and I like the sunlight coming from behind it and through the leaves.
