Spanish moss. Sorry for the portrait mode, only way to get them in their best “glory”.
My folks have that in their yard, we call them “old man’s beard”! 😂
“Spanish moss was given its name by French explorers. Native Americans told them the plant was called Itla-okla, which meant “tree hair.” The French were reminded of the Spanish conquistadors’ long beards, so they called it Barbe Espagnol, or “Spanish Beard.” The Spaniards got back at them by calling the plant Cabello Francés, or “French Hair.” The French name won out, and as time went by Spanish Beard changed to Spanish moss.”
@fastidious That’s the kind of moss that hangs from trees right? 🤔
@prologic yes, it is a hanging moss. Very, very rarely kills the tree. They coexist.
@fastidious Interestinf piece of history 😆
Hm reminds me of New Orleans 😀
