My blue fescue grass - well previously blue tinged - has gone green, and has dead yellow bits in it since the winter.
It just looks like clumps of normal albeit a bit dwarfed grass. It's getting enough water and sun.
Could it be seasonal? A disease - doesn't look diseased? Debating pulling it up.
Anyone have experience with this plant?

I find that all the ones I planted turned green but ones that self seeded in joints on the patio, although small, have stayed blue.

I've no idea why. I've tried on two separate years with planting but on each of the following years they turned green. So I threw them over the wall. Very Happy

Maybe they simply need kindness to make their day better.
Try to be nice to everyone there is enough hatred going around.

It was honestly a joke. It's normal for not all neighbours to like each other. Awful people have to live somewhere. Jokes and laughter are part of life. I have never done or said anything to my neighbours. I was very nice to them when I moved in but now I completely avoid them because I discovered they are the violent kind. I would never throw anything over the wall unless I wanted the husband, who has no problem hitting stranger women out and about in the day, to kick my head in. When you make remarks like that about a joke you take away the laughter in the world and replace it with negativity. You were having a go at me over an innocent joke, twisting it into something nasty, which is not very kind, which could look like you were looking to intentionally cause trouble.
