This classic tableau on Limehouse Street pretty much screams Charleston. And as the sign says, Happy Easter!
Charleston is awash in blooms of azaleas.
It was shockingly cold and snowy in Charleston today…
It snowed in Charleston last night…
… April Fool’s!
Charlestonians are known for the pride they take in their gardens. Here’s a classic example.
The Old Exchange Building is one of the most significant historic buildings in Charleston and the United States. George Washing ton was there, the Declaration was read to the citizens from its balcony… and on and on. But underneath, literally, there is a darker side — the Provost Dungeon, which housed some nasty prisoners… including some pretty famous pirates.
These flying flags, glowing in the late afternoon sun, can be found on Tradd Street.
This beautiful sidewalk and ironwork is found at the John Rutledge House, home to one of the most historic figures to live in Charleston, SC. Rutledge was a delegate to the Stamp Act Congress and the Continental Congress, Governor of South Carolina during the American Revolution, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, and twice served on the U.S. Supreme Court.
The azaleas are bursting into bloom all over Charleston. This glorious group are on Limehouse Street.
