We took off one day last week and visited Charleston, so nice to live so close to my favorite city. It was hot, about 78 degrees, and moved up into the 80's the second day we were there. The great shot I took above was heading back one evening down Church St. St. Philips church is in the background, spring planters delivering their lushness in my path.
I had time for a quick walk before dinner.
I arrived back at the hotel , changed and then we went walking to a restaurant. You can walk to all restaurants, shops, gardens, etc. here.
That is me and my lovebug, we were all heading out to eat, and as you can see staying at our favorite place to stay in Charleston, The Indigo Inn . I was tired, we were tired, as I had been antiquing in the outskirts of Charleston for about 4-5 hours, with my husband and son.
Yes, they were troopers.
This was a nice antique 19C oil I found there...but let's get back to the gardens.
Charleston was already showing its early Spring debut. I took lots of pictures of window planter boxes, as they are everywhere, and I mean ALL over Charleston.
Then various other shots of pretty Spring.
Let me show you....
A tulip garden.
White azaleas pushing through wrought iron.
My favorite little cupids in Charleston, that are the only ones I have seen anywhere that are like my identical twins, that I have in my garden, look...
I have to get my behind out and work in my garden as all my fellow garden bloggers are kicking it with their hard work they are showing in theirs.
Ok, back to Charleston...
I'll just be quiet( if I can here), and show you what I saw.
Do you see how Charlestonians cram so many flowers into one windowbox and it works !? I see I could not stay quiet for even one picture frame.
I will try again.
Early evening picture coming back down Church St.
I give up on no talking.
This one was on Rainbow row.
Rainbow Row, famous grouping of colorful homes near the Battery area.
I have said in previous entries, that Charleston has very small front yards, or no front yards. But that does not stop the residents and business owners from putting out overflowing planters, urns and windowboxes for us to enjoy.
I think this entry is running too long, so I will leave you with a shot of some romantic lovers walking along the battery,it was early morning here, they were holding hands, probably in their late 40's or 50's.
They looked peaceful and happy that morning.
Charleston is for lovers you know, they are everywhere, all ages, holding hands, smiling.
Hopefully I will do an entry of just some people holding hands and looking in love and happy, walking about Charleston.
I will also continue this one of some other garden shots and some funny dog pictures of spoiled pooches in Charleston.
Busy day here, running very behind on all kinds of important tasks,
take care all,
