From the Brussels sprouts nursery

Brussels sprouts, Johns Island, SC
I have no recollection of eating a Brussels sprout as a child but now after roasting them in a hot oven, I love them. Truthfully, I don't think I had ever seen them growing on a stalk until today. 
I have a good meal ahead of me.

Baby Bananas


Baby bananas in the women's courtyard at the hospital.
I am recommending a farm-to-table menu of banana sundaes, banana pudding 
and banana cream pie in the cafeteria. Locally sourced!

Georgetown, SC day tripping

Georgetown, SC
Georgetown is the perfect distance up the coast for a day trip from Charleston. This time we combined a few birthday celebrations with lunch at the Hopsewee Plantation Tea Room. It was lovely to be there without being swarmed by mosquitoes! We had enough time to head further up to Georgetown to wander through a few antique stores and shops.

Greetings from the swamp!

Audubon Swamp Walk, Charleston, SC 
I intended to walk through the gardens and catch the camellia blossoms but drove up to a full parking lot and discovered I was there on Pirates & Mermaids day. Yikes! I made a quick turn and wandered through the swamp instead. 

College campus walking

The Cistern, College of Charleston, Charleston, SC 
Strolling through the College of Charleston campus is a pretty walk at any time of year. These photos are actually from last weekend. I have some catching up to do!

Church Photo in Lieu of Attendance: St. Matthew's Lutheran

St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, King St., Charleston, SC 
We've featured this church scene before but the camelias in bloom caught my eye yesterday. This is St. Matthew's Lutheran on King St.

St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, founded in 1840 by a group of Germans who wished to worship in their native language, quickly outgrew its original building at Hasell and Anson Streets in Charleston. 

The congregation moved into its current building in 1872.  The small congregation could never have envisioned its growth to become South Carolina's largest Lutheran church at the beginning of the 21st century. 

From the beginning until today, St. Matthew's has reached out to meet and serve the needs of others in our local community and throughout the world, as ordained by God.

The big apple!

College of Charleston, Charleston, SC 
It took me awhile to realize it was carved as a map of the globe. The project was created to bring attention to global food security. #everyoneeats.

Make America Kind Again

Sidewalk Graffiti, Charleston, SC 
Make America Kind Again. Don't get me wrong. I see kindness every day but I'm always happy to see more. Carry on!
