Savannah Charm


Porches, sweet tea, century old oak trees, flowers, and conversation.  A perfect spring afternoon was seen on many a porch.  Many stone and brick walls had vines a bloom with flowers - I don't know what they were, but they smelled wonderful.


And maybe the following is an example of "aroma overdose"?!


The last photo is my selection for this week's "Creative Exchange".  Even though I think the middle photo is the sweetest, the bottom one makes me laugh.  I hope it got a chuckle from you as well! :)

There are lots of amazingly talented people that submit to the Creative Exchange.  I have never done this before, but I really, really enjoyed the art work and touching up of Rosemary's blog photos.  Click HERE to see what I mean.

Thanks for taking me back to vacation in Savannah. That town is magical! I would have loved to see even more pictures of the town. It's so creepy and inspiriting and beautiful and ancient all at the same time.

Nothing better than a big front porch! The photos of the cute kids are wonderful - I love the little boy's expression!

Thank you all for enjoying a bit of Savannah with me. It was hot, but so much to see and do. Gives one an excuse to have a lovely cold ice tea and ice cream in between meals! :)

Nora - I have a few more photos, but I had little kids with me and they aren't always so patient with me taking photos all the time ... :)

Jannie - the children are mine... my son really was well behaved but we did not take him on the mansion tours... I think the "historical society" ladies would have had a heart attack with him on the tour... ha ha
