~We don't grow these in Oklahoma~
We have enjoyed seeing all the tropical plants here in Florida. It has reminded us a lot of Indonesia! There have been a few that have really caught our interest though. One is the 'spanish moss'. I'm not sure what I think about this moss. It is a little dreary looking to me, what do you think? I googled it and found that it is not really a moss, it is used for mulch and for floral arrangements. Birds also like it in their nests. I do have to say it is not a favorite of mine, but it is definitely interesting to see.
Another plant we have not seen in Oklahoma is the 'Banyan Tree'. This tree is amazing. I read about a banyan tree about seven years ago. I was preparing for a devotion and found a comparison a pastor had made about a christian and a banyan tree. This tree grows roots from it's branches, these roots grow down to the ground and turn into thick woody trunks, it's hard to tell sometimes where the real trunk is. The leaves on the banyan tree are very large. Hannah was really excited about finding these large leaves.
This is one tree, the original trunk is toward the back on the right. One of God's amazing creations.
6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
... and of course, we always enjoy seeing these. They are just so, well, tropical!
