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.
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.
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.
