Song of the South

Flowers, anyone??

Long weekend's almost knocking on us and a few minutes back we decided, on a total whim, that we are not spending it at home. One week of school and I'm already yearning to hit the road.....so off we go again, this time headed to Savannah, Georgia :)

I am so stoked to see the town Le Monde once described "The most beautiful city in North America," (so claims Wikipedia). I am not using any adjectives till I have been there. Meanwhile, people in the know, you gotta tell me what all to see, do and visit while in town. Anna , Ginnie , I need your help!!!! :)

Have one heck of a weekend, all :)

Have a great time in Savannah. Hope Ginnie gave you good ideas. I've never been, and I want to go, and also to Charleston. That's a beautiful tableau of flowers, wow.

Have a nice trip Moi! What a beautiful planter...

suramya said...

thats a lovely moi-ish picture

Z said...

Wow! That's an amazing abundance of blooms in that planter. In fact, I can't get over the fact that it's a planter, I would have guessed a vase-type thing to hold cut flowers given the profusion of them!

Have fun in Savannah! I know it only though the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and it sure looked purdy.

Hurreyy...Savannah is really great place...! Its historical town...n has soem kind of romantic feel. You will luv it for sure. Don’t miss to dine out at restaurants near to that river park...they have delicious fish there, n the famous ice cream store (local) is just one block on the same edge...you will be getting tons of singer's n musician’s, ship’s n building’s shots there for sure...!
n yaah, the bridge you will be taking to enter this city is just fantastic..!

Have loads of fun…Happy Weekend!!

Lovely photo, pretty colors and framing. Looks like a nice home to walk up to and knock on the door to be invited in for tea.

Hope you have a good time in Savannah. Never been to Georgia. Somehow managed to miss that State on our travels. Will put it down for next summer. :)

That is a beautiful photo. I love the pain colors, the lemon yellow and the crisp white, and the flowers are perfect looking. Nice.
