Florida Greens

 It is always so cool to travel and see things that you don't have at home.

I think palm trees are so funny! 
The long thick trunks with the rings around and the carrot top of fronds just kill me!

 I mean, who in their right mind would have thought up something like that?

....And Spanish moss just grips me with feeling of awe.

I mean, spooky really.

How it hangs off the branches and has no visible roots or method of sustaining itself!

Is it a real thing, or something right out of my imagination?

Palm trees in the park in Palatka and the moss is from Gates Ferry, the St Johns River, both Florida.

All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

Oooo, I love the moss, too. I saw on the Hornby Eagle's nest (the Mom and Dad Eagle are sitting on two eggs) and just yesterday they brought a bunch of moss like this into the nest to pad the eggs. I guess everybody loves this stuff, not just me and you.

Palm trees are just huge pieces of grass!

I removed your link, because I didn't see a SOOC post.

That moss creeps me out. I think of snakes in areas like that and then I am done. eeek.

I know what you mean in your comment on my blog about the ones in the till being closest to the customers. My supervisor asked me if I was left handed because I redo my my cash drawer smallest to largest, left to right every time.

That moss is amazing. If it were nighttime I would be afraid of it.

Hi there, the moss is so awesome! Thanks for sharing, I think it's just ghostly magnificent - how it's hanging off the tree branches. I really enjoyed the willowy looks about them.

My hubby is from Tallahasse and when I went there for the first time I was amazed with the moss...all I thought was I pay lot of money for that in the craft store! And I am from CA, so a place w/o palm trees is foreign to me. I always love your photos.
