Susuki Grass?

Not sure whether this is the susuki that I like (seen often on my blog, as of late here, here, here, here, and here), but it's certainly pretty.

One comment so far...

Could you expound on “invisible during the day” part about the ball twins?

Oops, sorry, it’s one of those things that makes sense only when you already know what what it is. They’re behind glass in a dark area, so the glass is like a mirror when the light is from outside. At night, there’s no light from outside, and the inside lights are turned on, reversing the mirror, so to speak. They’re sufficiently hidden from normal traffic/view that most people would never come across them anyway, so they seem quite forlorn. —Jeffrey
