My obsession with trees continues. All the rain has revived the resurrection ferns on the branches. This morning’s sun cut through the thick humid air and lit up all the colors of green. I get soooo happy with this season. Best of all, Jasmine will be blooming soon.
Georgian Palladian architecture on a Wednesday. I look at these hand stamped plaster stars imagining the great skill and labor that built this huge manor. And the guests that were received here. So grand!
A Church Street favorite, circa 1753, it was built just outside the bounds of the original walled city. It sat on Vanderhorst Creek, which was filled in and is now called Water Street. Those posts were where boats tied off, or so I heard. If you were following my stories a few days ago, this was my spot serving as a street marshal for the @historiccharlestonfoundation home and garden tour.
Sometimes scrolling through archives is helpful to remember stuff. Or am I the only one whose years and days are blurry? Looking for a client photo and finding all the seasons of Charleston and ages of my kids like “2018 was last year?”.
