Live Oak Drive, Bonaventure Cemetery

The grave monuments are kind of hard to see beyond the line of oak trees, but the cemetery seems to have filled in along the dirt drive.

The Spanish Moss draping the trees is native to the American Southeast.  It’s an air plant, which means it draws most what it needs from the air.  It doesn’t feed on its host oak, although if it grows too plentiful, it can interfere with the sunlight the oak needs to survive.

This postcard wasn’t used, but it had an uncanceled green George Washington 1-cent stamp affixed to it.  Those stamps were printed between 1912 and 1914.

Wonder why the card wasn’t used?
