POND GRASS
 AND HORSETAILS

There are two water grasses
that do especially well
in or near ponds or still water.

Cattails emerge in early summer,
and are gorgeous all on their own.
But horsetails are ancient grasses
that do well near streams or lakes,
and manufacture natural silica.
(Strange for a plant to make
its own mineral.)

Beautiful grasses, aren't they?
