Tuesday Photo Challenge: Spring

Spring in Savannah

Spring in Savannah, Georgia

A blooming dogwood tree covered with Spanish moss in Savannah’s Bonaventure Cemetery.  Spanish moss is a bromeliad and, in general, does not damage the trees on which it lives;  it does not put down roots. In this instance, however, the moss does seem to have overwhelmed the dogwood tree, which is blooming mostly on new growth. During dry periods when Spanish moss lacks water, it appears fragile and gray. When plant tissues expand after rain, the moss takes on a green hue. This cycle is repeated throughout the year.
