Here’s an interesting piece from a writer at The Huffington Post that I thought you might enjoy entitled “25 Reasons You Must Visit Charleston.” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/23/charleston-south-carolina_n_4305335.html)
It lists 25 reasons to visit Charleston, especially this time of year when the tourist population wanes a bit. Pictured above is a palmetto rose which checks in at #12 on the list. They do make a nice souvenir and a collection of them also serve as a lovely and unique centerpiece.
As a local, albeit a transplanted one, stories like these help me appreciate what we have in the low country. And looking at the weather reports from up north today are another reason. Brrr, it looks chilly so come on down y’all!
