Not very far beyond the spillway bridge, we pass a patch of Foxtail Grass bending over the trail on our walks. It’s lovely backlit by the sun. Its seeds can be dangerous to dogs, creating anything from major irritation to eyes, ears and throat, to death if the toxins reach internal organs. Dogs aren’t supposed to be on the trail, so maybe it will remain beautiful, and not lethal.
Naming the plants I find at Radnor, as usual, isn’t a sure thing. Foxtail grass is my best guess after searching books and internet, but I’m grateful for corrections.
