Sans flags or signage, a Medusa’s head air plant sprouts from a cherubic candle holder on Lake Tugaloo’s orange shore. Bienvenidos glampers.

Tillandsia

An algorithmic walk (and respite from I75 traffic) leads to a man in a tie-dyed shirt selling air plants alongside a young bearded glassblower at the Chattanooga River Market. It’s curious how much the misplaced tropical plants above resemble the tendrils of captive animals living a few hundred yards away inside Tennessee Aquarium tanks.
