Today's Flowers: Life Goes on and on...

IMG 3465

This rose bloomed between two of its predecessors outside the Poplar Grove Plantation in Wilmington, North Carolina, a few weeks ago. Beyond the roses was this garden and a tree (What kind of?) draped in Spanish moss. I like the moss very much. It seems to insist on coolness no matter how muggy the day.

  2. Spanish moss always makes me think of ghosts: women draped in gossamer floating on a breeze.

  3. And I hope that it will. Go on and on.....since I have come to the desert, I miss a little of the Spanish moss, it is lovely to see. I think it says no to the dry clime.

  5. Gorgeous roses, love the color! Spanish Moss is one thing I always loved about the deep South! Your photo reminded me of the trees in New Orleans and in Savannah! Enjoy your day, Sandy!

  7. Imaginative title for the new and spent roses!
    I didn't like Spanish moss the first time I saw it many many years ago but I've grown to like it's southern charm. :)

  10. I have some roses from my garden on the left of my computer. Recently, I heard that they can lower blood pressure. Don't know about that but they sure are beautiful. I'v never paid much attention to moss - but I will from now on. Your pictures are great.

  11. The roses are gorgeous! I like the moss too but I hear that many Southerners are not so fond of it.

  12. The rose is beautiful, and I also like the Spanish Moss on trees. We have never visited Poplar Grove, but we have been to Orton Gardens, an old rice plantation just south of Wilmington.

  13. The roses are beautiful. I love Spanish moss. I always enjoy seeing it when I'm in Wilmington or Beaufort NC. Those are two places where I see it the most.

  16. I too love to see those big old trees draped with moss. It is so "Southern". I always know when I am down south when I see this.

  19. Beautiful roses, and I really like the drapey Spanish moss. We have something similar here called "Lace Lichen." It looks like a light green lacy fabric hanging from oak trees near creeks and lakes. Lichen is a symbiotic relationship between algae and a fungus. I think Spanish Moss is also a hanging lichen.

  22. Roses, like all of us, come and go and each one leaves memories behind.
    Lovely Spanish moss. I have it growing in my shade house. It is very effective in covering the top of a pot when showing orchids.
