Sunny pictures for a rainy day

Avery Center, Bull St., Charleston, SC    
How about a few sunny pictures on a dreary rainy day? My plants are getting a good soaking and my caladium bulbs are saying,"thank you, thank you."

Today's pictures are from a recent walk by the the Avery Research Center on Bull St.

A beautiful building, with a great purpose.

I feel like kicking myself.For a year my daughter lived pretty much right across Bull St from the AI and I never got around to walking over there.It certainly is a grand building with the history to boot.The funny thing I remember about the neighborhood was that it was full of raccoons.The daughter left catfood out for them!

No kidding! I didn't know we had that many raccoons downtown!
