I love Pampas grass and this shot captures it's billowy quality wonderfully! My Grandfather had a huge patch of it, I'd like to have it in my garden but keep getting vetoed by Mom...LOL

Great photo of Pampas with the mountains in the background! I've thought about planting Pampas but my DH always vetoes that. It does get a bit ratty looking sometimes in winter and someone told me it's a good hiding place for snakes ... yikes, I don't need any more hiding places for those critters!
