Outdoor Wednesday ~ Bluffton, South Carolina

Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by the beautiful Miss Susan of A Southern Daydreamer
I have never participated but have been enjoying visiting all the blogs for sometime now. Savannah is really wet from all the rain we have received this summer so not really anything to share from here so let me show ya a little bit of Bluffton, South Carolina and the beautiful May River today.


Let's begin at The Church of the Cross
Episcopal service on “The Bluff” of the May River first took place in the early 1830s. The young town of Bluffton was a summer resort for the area and inland planters and a stop on the ferry route between Savannah and Beaufort. From the banks of the church grounds you can take in all of the sights, sounds and smells of The May river.
Or how about a walk around Old Town Bluffton under the shade of live oaks and cypresses covered in Resurrection fern, Spanish moss and Ivy.
The fern is an air plant, which means it attaches itself to other plants. It gets its nutrients from the air and rain water that collects on the outer surface of the bark and with all the rain we have been receiving this summer it has been gorgeous . When it is not receiving rain it turns brown and curls up looking very dead which is how it got it name Resurrection fern once the rains start it opens up and starts showing off.

There is lots of little paths and streets so if you visit make sure you take the time to wonder down each one like the one that leads to that cozy little bench which is also over looking the May river which is where I would love to be this morning.

hope ya'll enjoyed the visit and will stop in often ...
now hurry on over to Miss Susan's and checkout Outdoor Wednesday
