Thursday Tree Love: Live Oak with Spanish Moss

30 Comments



This particular southern live oak lives in Airlie Gardens near the coast of North Carolina.

The grounds keepers were just starting to decorate for the holidays, but nature has already decorated with Spanish Moss catching the afternoon sunlight.

My favorite work of human art in the gardens is this bottle house which also catches the sunlight.

Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Tharul Pakur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.

  8. We took streetcar a tour of downtown Savannah, Georgia once and one of the first things the tour guide said was “don’t touch Spanish moss! It has chiggers in it and you will get bitten up”. (Those bites ITCH.) But it looks so good on the live oaks – I’d like to visit this garden one day. Enjoyed the glass bottle house picture, too.

  9. Wow that’s beautiful, had never seen anything like this ever. thanks for sharing this lovely picture.

  10. Such a beautiful and large tree. We don’t have these kinds of trees here in this part of the world.

  11. Goodness, that’s a lovely tree! Did the Spanish moss survive the winter?
