Carex laxiflora-3Sounds to me like a lazy sedge.

I came out of a building the other day with Rachel in tow and stumbled over what most other people would be trying to throw weed killer on.  It was growing up out of a crack in the sidewalk.  My exclamation of “Oh! Look how cute it is!” was met with “Mom, you are SO weird!”

The arrangement I made of it in a Waterford vase makes it look very different than it does coming out of a crack in the sidewalk, but that’s okay.  I love it anyway.
