Paddy Plants For Decoration

I've been growing paddy since I visited Myanmar some four years ago. I love paddy plants for the vibrant green color that the blades have and I am always happy just sitting by the road watching the paddy sway in the wind in places like Bali, Vietnam and Myanmar.
I have over the years harvested enough seeds to keep growing paddy as ornamental plants in my home. We pulled out an old Chinese themed dish to start out a handful of seeds and look how beautiful they are sitting in the middle of my dining table.
I had to move my dining table and thank goodness that I have a covered patio on the back to allow outside dining.
