Flowers grow to the sun

Charleston, SC  
I am calling on my lowcountry sleuths to solve this one for me. What is the white floral object on the peak of the roof? A friend of mine from the upstate noticed it when she was visiting Charleston so I tracked it down myself this morning. The bottom photo shows the enlargement and it really does look like a flower. What do you think?

    1. Decorative one. I've never seen a flower before.

  4. The owl was used during the victorian era for protection. They believed it protected the home from evil spirits.

    1. Really?! I assumed it was to keep small birds from flying in. Why did I think that? Silly me.

    2. I thought the same thing about owls on rooftops. Interesting.

  5. No question. It is a NSA listening station antenna. Whisper when you are in the area.

  6. It's designed for the sole purpose of making people wonder what that is.

    Either a quite cleverly disguised lightning rod, or a device for ET to phone home?

    1. ET lives in the attic and had to find a signal. That's it!

  8. This beautiful East Battery home is one of my favorites! I'm surprised the Estonian flag isn't flying - it's a private home and also serves as the Estonian Consulate in Charleston.
