Spreading Around the Ambiance

This scene is on the small patio outside our family room in SJC. That is Spanish moss hanging from the candelabra, my touch of ambiance. Every morning when I open the door, some of the moss is spread out all over the table. It seems that the birds have discovered it and are thrilled about adding it to their nests. It is easy to see how it spreads so readily throughout the south where the humidity helps it thrive. Propagation of this bromeliad is incredibly easy. Just pull off a piece and hang it somewhere else. Or let the birds do it!

I love it! Guess I should pull my Spanish Moss out too for my newly redressed front porch. That was so obvious I seemed to have forgotten. Thanks for the reminder!

There is always a little treasure when I come to visit your gardens. This vignette is wonderful - an ecclectic invitation to sit and chat with a friend. -Shyrlene
