I think there must be a law that I didn't hear about that says all shutters in the Lowcountry must be black! That is cool, the shutters on our house just happen to be black. But I remember seeing some that were green, and maroon too. Oh, dear, someone must be breaking the law! Shutter Law!!

You would think you were on a beautiful southern plantation when you first arrive and see this. Actually this is the sight of a former rice plantation and it is still so gorgeous even as a cemetery!
The trees here have been battered through the decades by hurricanes - but the are still majestic!
The beautiful Magnolia Blossom reigns here!

It just seemed fitting to view all these pictures in black and white. We visited Charleston's oldest public cemetery, Magnolia, and were thrilled by the beauty of the trees and the peacefulness in the air.
Click on the pictures and enlarge them. Much better that way!
The cemetery holds 84 bodies of South Carolinians who fell at Gettysburg and were reinterred at Magnolia. It is such a moving site to see.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the beautiful hand made ironwork! I couldn't get enough of it and took way too many pictures!

I don't know what these flowers are - but I do know they are lovely. Many of them were in the butterfly house.
This is the amazing Blue Bottle Bush! Click on it to enlarge so that you can really enjoy it! :)
