The Harvest and Happy Thanksgiving to You All

Wild thing, you make my heart sing.
It looks like it's ready for harvest.  Except you can't really harvest these.  At least not for human consumption.  They're wild grass.  I'm sure they're good for something.  Maybe wild animals could feed on them?  I'm attracted to the color here.  These wild plants are probably the only gold left here in California. That's probably why we can still claim that this is the Golden State.

Not sure if I've posted this before.  If I did, I'm sorry.  Reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut's speech to a university crowd.  He said that the first thing they teach you in public speaking is not to say you're sorry.  After which, he shouted "Sorry!  I'm sorry for this stupid rule!"  I thought that was funny.  If you didn't get the joke, that's okay - no need to say you're sorry. Hah!

Hope you enjoy.  Happy thanksgiving to all!  - R
