This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous here in Charleston. We were blessed with blue skies, moderate temperatures and best of all, low humidity. It was the perfect weekend to walk the beach, eat at a favorite outdoor cafe, or take a stroll through a nearby historical neighborhood and enjoy the beautiful homes and gardens, which is what I did on Saturday morning. Window boxes are overflowing with colorful blooms and I love that every house on the block is unique and filled with history. If only each home could tell us its story! I love to take pictures of homes and gardens that inspire me, especially as I continue to layer a little southern charm to my own abode.
The flowers are at their peak right now and do so much to dress up these historical homes.
These homes caught my eye and were on the same block, but as you can see very different from each other. I love that about old neighborhoods. I would move into all of them!!
I loved the color on this one. I picture some ferns hanging on the porches and pots of colorful flowers on the steps.
I bet this pink lady was magnificent at one time. The homes in Charleston are never torn down, but restored to their former beauty. I can’t wait to see this one after her makeover!
If you’re looking for a little inspiration for your home, simply walk out your front door or take a stroll through your favorite neighborhood and enjoy the spring colors.
Have a great week! ~ May
Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.
