Sunlit Sunday 6 ~ Beautiful Friends

Downtown Savannah is so gorgeous right now

My biggest dose of sunshine this week was provide by 
the beautiful Miss Joey 
the "HO-HUM HOUSEWIFE" of The Village Voice 
believe me she is anything but "HO-HUM"
She is warm and loving, gives big hugs 
and lots of encouragement. 
She and her husband are doing a whirlwind trip from Michigan to Florida then home again
 with as many stops as they can in between. I was so honored that we got to spend some time together. 
I have been following Miss Joey's blog for years. 
Her photography is amazing her recipes yummy but best of all her comments to me have always shown her humor and love.. 
She is as beautiful on the inside as the out with a hunky hubby to boot.
hugs to you both and thank you for bringing your warm sunshine to my Savannah and for all the giggles... Beth and I loved every moment of it.
















and looking forward to seeing
all the sunshine that is being shared today...

Sunlit Sunday 5 ~ Daddy's rose

Good morning everyone hope it is as beautiful where you are at as it is here in Savannah this morning
This is a Cherokee rose that my daddy rooted and planted for me a few years back sure wish he was here to see how big it has grown and how many blooms are on it this year.

my white wisteria is in full bloom and smells so yummy I just want to sit under it and soak it all up

the rose and the wisteria have wrapped themselves together 

to be about one of the pretties sights I have ever seen... if only they could last a little longer.

a little kiss of sunshine


and some warm biscuits..
Looking forward to seeing
all the sunshine that is being shared

Daufuskie part 4 ~ native Magnolia trees


Look at this ancient live oak it is spectacular
This was the home place of Moses Ficklin a deacon of the First Union African Baptist Church and the Gullah undertaker along with his wife Grace who was the island's midwife.
 It has been completely restore and is now a private resident.

This is the carriage that was used as the hearse 


old pottery and everyday household items can be seen at the Billie Burn Museum

I loved seeing this letter dated August of 1945 the return address is Desoto Beach Hotel
Savannah Beach, Georgia which is now called Tybee island, Georgia and the Desoto is still there

These are some of the things John has found, they are reworking some of the drainage ditches and he says that there is all types of things just laying around. The shell was used as a tool / weapon and the old pot is from the Marine-Hospital Service which took care of sick seamen..
 you can read more about that here.

John also show us a native Magnolia tree that could be one of the biggest in South Carolina we had to go a little way's through his property into the woods to find it.

and it was well worth the walk .. These pictures really don't show how wide the base of this tree really is.

This one kinda gives you an idea... That is our guide John who ain't no shorty but he sure looks like one up side this monster.

do you see what Beth and I see? This was to the back of the tree which I didn't see till Beth shared her pictures and the first thing I saw was an old man's face..lol Beth and her husband had already said the same thing .. What do you think .. I think he is the protector of all those that come to visit...

and how about the toes on this guy..
Have a wonderful weekend everyone Beth and I are off on our next adventure it's
 Peaches to Beaches weekend over 200 miles of junking
 and we are going to do our best to hit them all..
see ya'll next week and yes there is still more to share of Daufuskie
hugs, Cherry
