Moss Curtain

 
Posted by Picasa


The Spanish moss was hanging so low from the trees in the parking lot in Maclay Gardens State Park that it looked like a curtain hiding my car on the other side.

When I was young, I always thought the trees had beards.

You know I love these!

Even though it is called moss I knew it isn't one but I allways thought it was a lichen, which is also wrong (there is a beard lichen called Usnea...)! In fact this plant is a tillandsia species belonging to the bromeliad family. Thanks Google! :-)

The moss makes me think of the south & adds a mysterious feel - Like a really good book, oh, like The Witching Hour by Anne Rice set in New Orleans

It certainly is a pretty curtain!

I like seeing moss like that. However it's usually only in pictures.

Intersting plant and a very effective screen. I have never seen a native plant quite like this one.

Lovely! Makes you want to hide behind the curtain...

Love this shot, Lois. Don't much like the Spanish moss, though. And I don't know if they still give out free orange juice or not...we usually run in and out of those places rather quickly.

Oh I love Spanish Moss!

A curtain is a great description.

Your title is a perfect description of this wonderful photo, Lois. It looks just like a curtain. Nice shot, very artistic.

This shot reminds me of the times my sister and I, as kids, used to sit under our weeping willow tree and eat our lunch out in the back yard. The view was pretty much the same. This moss is beautiful though Lois. Very nice.

A very lovely look. Very southern.
I like the scare crowa in the previous post. MB

«Louis» has been away from the South so long, he had forgotten about Spanish Moss!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

I have never seen a hanging moss in my lifetime like that. It does look like a curtain indeed!

Like a gossamer curtain. Lovely composition and very descriptive of your part of the country.

It looks like a wonderful curtain behind which should be a hidden garden. I guess the photo set my imagination on "drive". Beautiful!
