Nope, not Maine! I just got back from a long, get-away weekend. Took a sojourn south to visit family. It was a trip that I had been putting off and needed to be done. It was a short trip but wonderful! This was one of the scenes outside my window, and I thought this tree was worth a closer inspection. At first glance, the moss looks quite stunning against the sun coming from the rear. But of course, on closer inspection, you can see the the damage being done to most of the trees it covers. Colloquially known as 'air plant', the moss apparently doesn't actually kill the trees in most cases, but to me the strangulation is obvious. It is a beautiful tree though.
