A Hello from South Carolina

Hello my blogger friends, I'm here in the State of South Carolina. The South will now be my new home, but where I permanently land is unknown at the moment. This is a Temporary touch down, GA, SC and NC, are all contenders.. And for now I'm staying with relatives until I find my bearings.

My sister took me site seeing and she knew exactly what I wanted to do first... Go visit a garden

Below: A few photos of Hatcher Garden a public garden and woodland Preserve here in South Carolina.

    I love Gazebos...

 And this cute little bridge with ferns...

Below: A close up of those gorgeous Elephant Ears in the back ground above; correct me if these are not Elephant Ears.. I won't mind.. But I think I'm right.

Below:  A Banana tree

Below: I also love all kinds of conifers...I believe this one is a Japanese conifer

More conifers...

This is unique..Wish I knew what it was...I got to do some researching

Below: Love the grasses...

Below: This shrub has an intoxicating citrus scent... It's got to be a citrus, but what kind I wonder?

" aaah the relaxing sounds of water.

Below: click to see and  hear the water...

I love frogs, I  hope to have a few in my future garden

Very unique... I have no idea what it is, several of the plant markers that Identify these plants were missing or not replaced.

Below: Love, love, love, these...I assume they belong to the palm family.

The South ain't the south with-out a Magnolia. This one was a giant and approximately 20 feet.

NEXT..... we ride through the country side...and snap some photos of Anderson Mill's Cows...

These cows were curious but cautious...

If I thought I was going to pet this one, I would have been sadly mistaken... Look at the expression on this heifers face... I read her loud and clear...
She said " I dare ya"

That's all for now Y'all  ..Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Sending hugs.....
    enjoyed the garden tour.

  2. Thank you Sherry. I missed you guys and my blogging. Glad to share some updates.

  3. Good morning Vetsy ~ I tried getting in here last night, but the post wasn't here even though it was on the list. Glad I checked again this morning. So glad you've made it to S.C. I'm sure you are enjoying the new scenery. I enjoyed the garden tour and the little farm tour also. Farms are quickly disappearing down here.

    Wishing you a place of your own, just right for you and that all things work out. Enjoy the hunt.

    Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog.
