The Spanish moss depending from the trees in the burial ground of St. James Church in Wilmington, North Carolina, seemed to luxuriate in the December sunlight as Della and hung over the fence and took photos of these botanical widow's weeds.

  8. The Spanish Moss is one of the things I really loved about Savannah and New Orleans! I can close my eyes now and see those huge, old trees hung with the moss and how beautiful it is! Have a lovely day, Sandy!

  12. Spanish Moss gives 'Languid' the connotation of secrecy, sex and surrender. It is where I want to be.
    I am always shocked by the brittleness of Spanish moss in the midst of so much humidity. It looks like sex but behaves like ego.
    Thank you for the pictures Sandy!

  15. I have always loved seeing it hanging from trees, like a grey veil - it has a feel of ethereal melancholy over it, but not in a sad way, more a tranquil one. I recall seeing it hanging from trees that would line the highway as we would approach the beaches in NC.;)

  17. I have never heard of Spanish moss being called Widows weeds. Hmmm It always screams Southern Living to me.
