Fake Wheat

Well... what with being away and all... and then having to conduct a massive recruiting drive for the Bear Olympics, Sandy totally forgot that he hadn't had an adventure today! But... never fear, there are always many adventures for a little bear. As Sandy lives in the prairies, he keeps an eye out for wheat (or rye or barley or oats - or anything grainy). Today... he saw this!
Sandy was very excited because this definitely looked like something wheaty... but Mama says it's not. It's a fake-wheat. It's too small...
And later in the season it doesn't really make grains. The silky strands are very nice though but tickle the nose!
Mama thought it was called Fox Grass but Google doesn't match that so... it could be called Bear-Hat Grass!

  1. That Fox Grass sure looks soft...like you could use it to sneak up on a friend who was taking a nap and tickle his nose or toes, hehehe.

  2. Yes! It is very ticklish... would definitely wake up an unsuspecting bear!
