2nd photo: Note our newly mowed "backyard lawn". We received another .31 inch of rain this afternoon... and so it goes for the "manicured" lawn my husband aims to maintain...The lush green scenery and lower temperatures are disconcerting to some of us native Texans.
And I keep noticing or discovering "odd" plants...

Description from Wikipedia

The Poaceae (also called Gramineae or true grasses) are a large and nearly ubiquitous family of monocotyledonous flowering plants. With more than 10,000 domesticated and wild species, the Poaceae represent the fifth-largest plant family, following the Orchidaceae, Asteraceae, Fabaceae, and Rubiaceae. Though commonly called "grasses", seagrasses, rushes, and sedges fall outside this family. The rushes and sedges are related to the Poaceae, being members of the order Poales, but the seagrasses are members of order Alismatales.
