The Queen of Marmalade


Tradd St., Charleston, S.C.

My walk this morning was bright and sunny and took me down to the waterfront around the Coast Guard Station.

I was looking out over the scene when I spotted this tiny scrap of paper glued to the top of a post and pushed the leaves out of the way to read it. It is an advertisement! The bushes were full of tiny citrus fruit, most green but a few turning orange. I wonder if any will survive the cold we've had. If they do I now know where to get a fat pint of the Queen of Marmie!
