Day 3 – A Blog Tour With Stepheny To Charleston, SC

Scan 51“Because of its devotional, graceful attraction to food and gardens and architecture, Charleston stands for all the principles that make living both a civic virtue and a standard.”                 South of Broad – Pat Conroy

In Charleston, no matter how small the space, nothing is wasted when it comes to putting plants in the ground. It teaches your eye to rethink your own opportunity to make use of all you’ve got.
