Today for our walkabout I am in Charleston, SC, one of my favorite places in the US. And one of my favorite spots to walk is down a very narrow walkway between two buildings deep in the shopping district. The walkway leads to the backside of the United Church of Christ Cemetery. I love it that this cemetery is old, jumbled, and not like any other cemetery I have explored. There is an old brick sidewalk to walk on and beyond the sidewalks are vines, gnarled trees, pine trees, and flowering plants that have been here for years. It is unkept in a kept sort of way. The tombstones are crooked, broken, close together with no rhyme or reason, and sinking. No two look alike and all have faded or worn epitaphs. Some pirates are buried near the outer wall. It is perfect, so wont you join me?

It truly is like an overgrown garden, nothing planned here!

Strolling through another section of town, I’m delighted with some wild tangerine colors with lively window boxes! I love the wrought iron on the windows too!
