A closeup picture of some Spanish moss hanging low from a tree next to the fence around St. John's Episcopal Cemetery. When I was a child, my grandmother used to warn me not to play with moss because she said it contained red bugs, which is another name for chiggers, nasty little bugs that burrow under your skin and bite, causing unbearable itching. We took our chances and played with it anyway, and yes, she was right! Click on the picture to see it up close. It's really quite pretty.
