Resurrection Fern

We stopped by Bulloch Hall yesterday to look that the Christmas decorations for this year and I noticed that the rain had resurrected the Resurrection Fern. Interesting plant and you will only find it here in the South on fairly old trees like cypress and live oak. The plant is an epiphyte or air plant like Spanish Moss. If there is no rain, as there hasn't been around here, the plant curls up and looks quite dead but as you can see with a little rain it just bursts out.
