Almost Wednesday, Almost Wordless

This past weekend Tim and I made a 24-hour trip to Charleston to celebrate the 50th anniversary of friends Carolyn and Wayne, our once across-the-street neighbors, and I snapped a few pics on a quick drive through the historic district before we headed home. So, here’s a quick look at a few things that lend charm to South Carolina’s oldest city.

Amazing window boxes!

In just a few hours, I’ll be at the airport to begin my final garden tour of the year. Stay tuned for bella Italia round two!

    Where are you visiting in Italy? Maybe we could meet. Are you visiting historic gardens, if so you’ll sure to be visiting my area which has the most important Renaissance gardens in the world.

    Pauline–Charleston is a wonderful city, especially in autumn when the heat and humidity dissipates. We’re planning another weekend in October, when most of the tourists will be gone.

    Thanks for sharing your latest impressions of Charleston. You simply can’t love gardens and not love Charleston. I enjoyed your recent article, Living the Dream, in October’s Carolina Gardener. Have a great…and safe…trip to Italia.

    You are off to Italy again? How wonderful. We have just got back. I see you are hoping to meet up with Christina. We visited her and saw her beautiful garden. If you go there ask her to show you the necropolis of Etruscan tombs near where she lives. it is an amazing place.
    Have a good trip.
