Welcome to my blog--a journal about my urban garden and the critters that
live and visit it.

Spanish Moss everywhere
You all have probably noticed the Spanish moss growing all over my garden. It all started with a small group of stems I found on the street a couple of years ago. Today it has become part of my garden décor.
The early morning sun's rays going through the Spanish moss gives the garden a spectacular shine.
Spanish moss is not biologically related to moss, it is related to the bromeliads family. It grows hanging from tree branches in full sun or partial shade. I also use it for ground cover on my potted plants and the birds like it for their nests.
