But there were two huge clumps of Pampas grass that got scraped off with the front end loader's bucket, along with all the other unwanted plants. We salvaged some of the roots and they are recovering and will become beautiful. Other parts went in the pile of stuff we took to the "yard waste" section at the dump. But in the process of cleaning all this up, my husband was frustrated by my enthusiasm. In the midst of the clean up, he had to stop so I could take pictures. This is Pampas Grass that has dried and curled after being treated poorly. I couldn't help but think that nature is pretty beautiful, even when it's been treated badly. This grass got literally bulldozed out of it's "happy home" and here it is making fabulous artwork in exchange!
