Happy Friday! I’m taking you with me to Charleston, South Carolina, a favorite weekend destination for us! No matter how many times I visit, I always enjoy taking a stroll in the early morning hours with my camera, to see the churches, stately homes, Palmetto Trees, Spanish Moss, courtyard gardens, window boxes and wrought iron gates.
We spent a long weekend in Charleston the end of June.
There were lots of flags flying in anticipation of the Fourth of July.
If you have a ‘notion’ to visit Charleston and prefer to stay dry ;) I recommend that you go when the both the temps and the humidity are not in the 90s . . . to say it was ‘pore-cleansing’ is an understatement! Early spring, late fall and even December are great times to visit.
Despite the summer heat, I’m always amazed at the flowers thriving in the window boxes. . .especially since I look like a wilted flower within 30 minutes of my arrival :)
I took this photo for inspiration for my containers next year. I love the combination of cleome in the center with the lime greens, reds and purples of with the coleus, angelonia and lobelia.
If you enjoy history, gardens, antebellum homes, and great food, you’ll be charmed by the hospitality and Southern flavor of Charleston!
This is a photo heavy post so I’ll keep the words to a minimum. Enjoy your virtual tour and scroll!

We’re back in the mid 90s here this week and the humidity is back the sweltering category. Hope you’re finding a way to stay cool and beat the heat!
Thank you for your visit, sharing with:
