Let's go to Charleston!
The Peggy Martins are still in bloom. I didn't make it in time to see them at their freshest, or fluffiest....or newest, but at least I got to see them!
I've been photographing the Peggy Martins for many years....I just think they are so pretty.
Lots of people out and about on this sunny Spring day
|at the old Market|
|and on street corners|
The old Rice Mill. Love to look at this. Still don't see how it's still STANDING on just one wall. LOL
|ladies taking a break|
|families getting pictures|
|beautiful ornamental work from long ago....|
Lots of hat ladies out today!!
|St. Michael's .....still standing right where I left it! ha ha LOL. so neat to think about how President George Washington climbed clear to the top! He enjoyed looking over our city, back when he visited in 1791|
the Basket Ladies are out with their wares, ready to sell!
|this bird perched up there, is pretending he is the "king". ha ha LOL|
|ancient bricks, and rusty old gates....make me happy!|
|we had this mailbox at our old house.....we need to get one for here!|
|Rust.........love it! ha ha LOL|
Beauties in bloom!
|beautiful purple Spiderwort. I love it. People told me "it's just a nasty old weed----mow it DOWN!" at a previous home. I loved it so much Mr. Front Porch left me a little square of it to grow tall and bloom. Our backyard there was FULL OF IT.|
LOVE THESE mosaic tiles!!
|uh-oh......this one has some breakage|
|beautiful craftsmanship on these old townhouses|
|house with a pool! LOL|
We went to our favorite Deli and got take-out for a picnic on the Battery. East Bay Deli serves UP THE VERY BEST RUEBENS in town. They are perfect, (hot, grilled, melty, cheesy) and I got a side of their good cold "tater" salad too. Washed down with sweet tea, of course!Scenes from the Battery:
|love the fish scales on this big house|
|creatures on guard!|
|this pretty house is all decorated to match----in sunny yellow|
|another one of my favorite Charleston gates|
and a view into the big pretty garden.
|the gate is tangled with Lady Banks, but I think they already bloomed this year|
When I zoom in, I can see a sun dial in there
I got one of these for Mr. Front Porch for Christmas a few years back
|blooms by streets.....|
|and in windowboxes|
We saw so many pretty flowers today, and the Jasmine was in full bloom as well, on the brick walls, fences, on shrubs, and up and down trees. Heavily scented, you know spring has arrived once it blooms. It lasts a few weeks, then it's gone.
I hope you enjoyed our visit back to Charleston with us today and saw some pretties you liked! One of my favorite things I saw today was the Season's first magnolia, creamy, white, big and perfect. Love them so much!
Thank you for stopping by to see me!
