Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Oak Alley - Part 3


The Virginia live oaks at Oak Alley Plantation, Louisiana were magnificent.











An air plant called resurrection fern grows on the trunk and limbs of these trees.  The air plant can withstand long drought periods and resurrect once they receive water again.
