Our first stop: the grounds of Plum Orchard estate. Love the Spanish moss! It’s neither Spanish nor moss, but a flowering plant of the pineapple family. Not a parasite, it attaches itself to live oaks (and lots of other things) for support, getting nutrients from rainfall, detritus and airborne dust.
