Catching the late afternoon sun, the stems and seed heads are glowing in every shade of gold imaginable. A perfect place to see a whole catalogue of grasses, how large they grow, their colour, their habit – pendulous, weeping, stiff and upright – and particularly how they move in the breeze. A real delight.
