Seeing Sea Oats

Northern sea oats, growing nowhere near the sea. The flat seeds flap around in the wind, making them lovely both now -- as the seeds are nearing their full size -- and through the winter as they turn brown.
Other observations...
Hazels are getting nutty!
Vervains are in full bloom.
ps -- we seem to have beaten blossom end rot due to the application of calcium-rich things to the soil. Yea! We will have to be careful with potted tomatoes in the future to make sure that the soil is properly amended.
