I've said before that Charleston is a garden that happens to have some old houses in it, and at no time is this more apparent than April. The pink trees and the camellias might be gone, and the lady banks roses, wisteria and azaleas are the next to be history for this year, but now everything else is out. All the roses. Jasmine and pittosporum. All of them are blooming and the scent is wafting down the streets. And it is so picturesque.
In Charleston there are other people besides me who wander around smelling the roses with camera in hand. Frankly I'm a halfhearted amateur. Joan, on the other hand, runs a blog which features a picture a day from Charleston and the surrounding area. Many feature architecture and gardens, something you can't escape, and something many of you have commented on here in my pictures. She also is very quirky and sees the lighter side of life (her quirky label tab is a riot). So today, I'm all about 'stealing' some of her fine photos to show you how lovely Charleston is through a different lens. If you like what you see, go check out her blog for a daily dose! Its one of my favorites and I live here. And if you don't live here its like a mini vacation walking through the streets.
