Muhlenbergia, East Beach

Muhlenbergia is quite common in Georgia and is known for its bright pink blooms in autumn. It’s particularly nice to see in masses on the dunes.

East Beach Christmas Tree, St. Simons Island

I talked to a couple of locals while admiring the latest additions to this driftwood totem, used to post remembrances of lost loved ones and pets earlier this summer, but now put into action as the East Beach “Christmas tree”. How cool is that?!

The first thing that caught my eye was this strip of vinyl siding with the legend “St. Simons 1-Matthew 0” in reference to the lack of damage the island sustained during this year’s hurricane.

Ornaments were actually being placed while I was getting the shots. I imagine the “tree” will be full by Christmas day.
