Gas Lantern Shadow

Gas Lantern Shadow

Shadows intrigue me. They are often just as cool as the subject itself. We were headed out the door and this caught my eye… I had to stop and take a quick photo. The elegance of this gas lantern displaying it’s shadow on the brick was so cool. It makes the lantern look huge (it’s not). Continue reading “Gas Lantern Shadow”


Poolside Geraniums – Charleston, SC


Our geraniums are bursting with color and have been for some time now. Even our geranium from last year that looked a little bleak after the winter (despite being put in the garage on the nights that we had that dipped below freezing) – but they are happy and blooming now.

I love this little scene. The pool, the wicker chair and the geranium. Our happy place!


Catch you back here tomorrow!

Portrait of a Blooming Violet!

Portrait of a Blooming Violet!

I love this time of year. Temps are nice, nothing too crazy going on (like a hurricane) – everything is blooming outside, and inside as well!

This violet was given to us 6/18/2007 when our Jack Russell, “Reginald” passed away. A neighbor gave it to us (thank you Cora!) – and it has gotten bigger each and every year. This violet blooms like crazy, it’s the happiest ever. It’s been repotted several times.  Continue reading “Portrait of a Blooming Violet!”

Azaleas blooming in Charleston, SC!

Azaleas – Charleston, SC

The azaleas are blooming in Charleston and they are plentiful, especially on our street. We live in an older neighborhood and just about every house has azaleas that were planted years ago and some are quite big, they are blooming and look so happy right now.

I thought I would take a moment to showcase the white azaleas that you don’t see quite as often as the bright pink (seen in photo above). We have a few white azaleas and the rest are the bright pink.

There is a rule with azaleas. No trimming until after they bloom. Break that rule and you get no blooms. I know… every few years they get leggy and we cut them back, and last year it wasn’t at the optimal time. This year we will cut them all back after the blooming is over and we should be good for next year.  I love when the entire street blooms at the same time (that doesn’t always happen). It’s stunning!

Happy Saturday!


Catch you back here tomorrow!

Oh Happy Day!

I love this photo… it screams to me “OH HAPPY DAY!” – You can feel the sunshine in an almost flawless sky. The bright green of the leaves against the sunshine yellow flower. You’ll never guess where I took this photo…  Continue reading “Oh Happy Day!”

Spanish Moss in Our Live Oak Trees

Spanish Moss in Live Oak – Charleston, SC

Just here to wish everyone a happy Saturday! Sending an image of
a live oak with the sun hitting the draping Spanish Moss and highlighting the resurrection fern – which is quite a miracle. Looks crispy and dead one moment and if a splash of rain hits it, turns bright green like the healthiest fern you’ve ever seen. Continue reading “Spanish Moss in Our Live Oak Trees”
