    just wondering…is that moss in the branches?
    or halloween ghost?

    Hello, Phillip. It’s neither a moss nor a Halloween ghost – it’s a lichen, probably something from the genus Usnea.

    Daniel, what an absolutely glorious photo! Thanks for linking to the two-years-prior BPoD pictures. I look at the one- and two-year photos each day, as well as enjoying the current day’s treat.

    Like other species, autumn dress can vary wildly between individuals. Some are amazing, others are terrible. Several I once had planted out front were always lousy, as are others planted in Camano Island garden – although now fairly large I thinking of suggesting we remove them, as they have been a source of annoyance for some years.
    Buying in fall color would be a good plan with this one, something that is true generally with deciduous trees and shrubs raised from seeds and planted for fall color.
