A Charleston Stroll: Gates, Gardens and More
Happy Sunday! I’m taking you back to Charleston, South Carolina today and sharing some photos of beautiful wrought iron gates, glimpses into courtyard gardens and some of the church steeples that can be seen rising above the otherwise low-rise skyline making Charleston known as The Holy City.
You can take a peek at the beautiful and blooming window boxes of Charleston here, if you missed it.
This is a photo heavy post I took over 500 photos over the course of the weekend, editing them down to about 360 photos–> I’m not a very good editor. ;)
Enjoy your scroll and stroll through Charleston :)
Thank you for your visit!
I just told my husband the other day that I would like to go to Charleston again. Haven’t been in years. Great photos!

You captured so much beauty, thank you so much for sharing……..Stunning!
Such beautiful photos thanks for sharing them. I’ve only been there once and loved it.
Charleston is so full of eye candy Mary, and your camera caught some magical shots…thanks so much for the living room tour, it makes me want to pick up my paint brush :)
I know what you mean about taking lots of photos, when you have an artistic eye, there is beauty in so many things! Wonderful theme today of the wrought iron and gates.
Wow, it sure looks like spring has sprung! Sounds like you had a nice weekend Mary-enjoy:@)
Beautiful pics! Now I really want to go there.
Oh so pretty! Thank you for sharing! Felt like I was on a stroll myself. Happy Sunday!
Thank you for the beautiful photographs…so much lovely inspiration
All gorgeous!! My favorites are the churches and the balconies!!! ⛲️💒❤
Your pics are gorgeous! Charleston is one of America’s great cities.
I had so much fun pinning your gorgeous pictures, I forgot to say thank you for the WONDERFUL POST. Charleston and Savannah, are probably one of my favorite places to visit. Thanks, Sandi
I could enjoy looking at all 500 pictures you took of Charleston and still want more . You are such a talented individual and I enjoy everything you share with us!! Mari in Colorado
Thank you for a look of Charleston. I am taking a road trip in May and will be visiting Charleston.
Love your selection of sites to see while in Charleston.
Charleston is such a beautiful city. Thanks for taking me there again through the lens of your camera. Your photographs are wonderful, you are such a professional.
Mary, it has been several years since I was in Charleston, but your gorgeous photos make me want to return. I love the beautiful and heavy iron work in Charleston…gorgeous fences and gates! Thanks for taking me back!
Enjoyed your post! Haven’t been to charleston since 1958…need to go back!
Such incredible photos of my favorite place in the whole world!!!
That was a trip down memory lane, Mary, from my trip there last September! I want to go back….maybe some day. Thanks for sharing the beauty.
Beautiful pictures! I love Charleston. The iron work is so gracious. I had scrolled window grilles made for my sunroom last year and another for a kitchen window this year. I love wrought iron.
How very pretty! Love all the beautiful pictures of the churches and their spires, which you don’t see much today on the modern chuches and that is so sad. The wrought iron work is lovely. I have never been to North or South Carolina, but have it on my bucket list and this makes me even more eager. One day this northern girl will make it down south and oh, how happy I will be! Thanks Mary!
Simply stunning photos. We are planning our first trip to Charleston during mid Apri and I too hope to take many photos. Could you kindly tell me what area of town I can find these beautiful places you photographed. Thanks ever so much.
Hi Vel, You’ll want to wander all over the downtown peninsula with your camera. Rainbow Row is along East Bay Street, you’ll find beautiful homes to see along the Battery. The Pineapple Gates House (Simmons-Edwards House) is on Legare Street. Lots of beautiful homes in the residential section of King Street and South of Broad. :)
What gorgeous photos! Now is the time to visit since you have the beauty of spring without the oppressive heat of summer. Thanks for sharing.
There is nothing like Charleston…I can walk for hours on end and never tire of seeing the gardens and those gorgeous iron gates and fences….truly a magical place to be! I need to take a trip there soon to see the Spring flowers in the window boxes and oh the Symphony Showhouse too!
Charleston has so many gorgeous architectural features and your great photography captured them perfectly! Thank you for this lovely armchair tour. Hopefully, we’ll get to go back again next year, maybe in the spring when everything is so pretty.
Beautiful pictures. Thank you so much for sharing.I really enjoyed this post.
