Windowbox


Windowbox

Even in the earliest of springs, Charleston is filled with flowers that survive the mild winters.... Container gardens and windboxes are bright with flowers and even the sidewalk tree areas boast daffodils and bright grasses.

We spent the day yesterday walking Charles Town Landing - I hadn't been there in over 10 years - and the entire park was redone to focus on the historic elements of the city -- from its settlement to the crops that brought it weath. A new history museum was simply outstandingly done as were the boardwalks, and marsh trails. I found many of the old trees that shaped my graduate studies and it was like coming home to some very cherished friends. C and I walked around downtown - and my gracious, the streets were crowded!

We had a birthday dinner with my daughter and family overlooking the Atlantic and waterway - and the are where she was raised ...

The day was filled with sunshine, exercise and laughter - just what the doctor ordered.

Today, it's the long drive home and a goodbye to a city I love and a daughter I don't see enough ...

Lovely spring painting!! So muted and soft. I especially like the reflections of the flowers in the window. Your day sounds perfect. Glad you had this wonderful time of sharing and relaxation.
Hugs,

Nice job on the reflections in the glass panes of the window. Super windowbox!! I love Charleston!!! The city has such character and southern charm in every nook and crany.
