Spanish Moss in Flower


It is easy to miss; the flower of the Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides) being so small.

A speck of green amongst the blue green curtain caught my eye and I saw that it was a flower  – insignificant, but it caused more excitement and wonder than the boldest bloom.  The flowers had been there all along; I just never noticed them and many had wilted but it was a blessed moment to catch a glimpse of one.

    There’s Spanish Moss in Australia? Here in the southern part of the US, we think we invented it. Thanks for undeceiving me. I’ll look out for the flowers too.
