Pretty Parasite

Spanish Moss

Spanish Moss
I know, I know!  It's not Spanish.  It's not moss.  And it's not a parasite, all myths aside.

Technically it's an epiphyte in the Bromeliad family.  In other words, it grows on air, though in the Deep South it prefers to grow on Live Oaks because they produce some helpful chemicals. 
However, in Savannah it grows on EVERYTHING!

As seen through a foggy lens -- dang humidity!
Throughout the South the Crepe Myrtles have been gorgeous this year.

Greetings from Savannah on this Thursday.

  1. It grows on everything in south Texas too. It does add nice atmosphere to those foggy mornings.
