Minature World

This leaf appeared to be floating in mid air when I spotted it but then I realized it was suspended by a spider web.  It wasn't until I downloaded my picture that I realized that the maker of the web was right there the whole time.  Can you see him?  If not, click on the picture.

Cemetery Wall

The wall around this cemetery at Hampton Plantation is beginning to crumble.

Wild and Natural

 We have an area in our yard that must have been there before they built the house.  Since we are in a subdivision with a small lot, it is unusual to see something that didn't get bulldozed down before they built the house.  But I love this little area o natural "stuff".  I know there is bamboo and I have learned about the beauty berry.  But I have no idea what this is.  Whatever it is, it is blooming now and the blooms are rather interesting.  Maybe some will tell me what it is.

We were at a ballgame last night and this was the view from the back of the stadium as evening arrived.

Magnolia Blossom

The Magnolia trees are usually so very large and the blossoms way to high to get a close up picture so I was delighted when I found this one at my level!  Isn't it lovely?

Hampton Plantation

About 40 miles north of Charleston sits Hampton Plantation.  Built in the mid 1700's, George Washington visited in 1791 and stood on that porch.  He suggested that the large oak tree you see NOT be cut down even though it blocked the view of the race track.  It is still there in all it's glory.

Pretty Flower

Time for a pretty Charleston flower.  Stolen from a lovely yard downtown.  Actually, not stolen...just preserved forever.

Grillwork with Red Door

Even a gas light burning to welcome guests.  I love this grillwork - even the lock is interesting.

Four Stories

This home looks so interesting.   Wouldn't you like to climb to the 4th floor and see what is up there?  I would!
