Art in Focus: Palmetto with Flowers - Greenville Journal
White, gave me a push to create it after having my son. I was on maternity leave recovering from a c-section when the idea began.
In memory of the Charleston church shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church and the overall theme of strength and resilience shown by South Carolinians during a recent flood at the time, I proposed to use the South Carolina palm tree adorned with handmade blacksmithed flowers, leaves and stems centered on a steel base.
I used a heart in the tree trunk to represent the love that South Carolinians have shown time and time again when historical events happen, as well as nine magnolias to represent the nine lives tragically lost in Charleston.
GJ: What materials did you use to create this statue?
JH: The materials chosen were aluminum and steel. I used a powder-coating painting process to ensure this sculpture will easily endure 10 years, if not a lifetime. I used colors such as South Carolina royal blue and red oxide [rust] to represent the history of the state, the flowing waters of the flood and blood, respectively. The base of the sculpture was cut in the shape of South Carolina out of 3/8-inch steel.
The main 8-foot-tall palmetto tree was constructed of 1/4 sheet aluminum and powder-coated royal blue. Strong acids and phosphates were used to prep the aluminum before powder coating to strengthen the bond of the high-grade powder coat to the aluminum structure.

How Azaleas Became the Signature Flowers of the South - HowStuffWorks
Japan, and made their way to the U.S. via England, France and Germany around the 1830s. The first American azaleas were planted on a plantation near Charleston, South Carolina, called Middleton Place Gardens, and have been associated with Southern gardens ever since. The oldest landscaped garden in the U.S., Middleton Place was created in 1741 by Henry Middleton using the design principles of Andre' Le Notre, who crafted the gardens at the Château de Vaux le Vicomte and Palace of Versailles in France. Among its highlights: a stunning view of blooming azalea gardens covering the hillside beneath the trees that is said to take your breath away.
Some other Southern spots to view these fabulous flowers: The gardens at Tryon Palace in New Bern, North Carolina, where azalea gardens can be found blooming in naturalized beds during the spring, along with thousands of tulip bulbs; Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, North Carolina, complete with 67 acres (27 hectares) boasting more than 100,000 azaleas; and Brookgreen Gardens, between Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, where you'll find a former rice plantation sporting one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures in the U.S. on 551 acres (223 hectares) surrounded by azaleas, camellias and live oaks.
So, why have azaleas become the signature flowers of the South? While these plants can be grown in many areas across the U.S., they prefer the moist, well-drained acidic soil and partial shade of the Southeastern U.S. "Due to their showiness and their adaptability to the climate — making them pretty easy to grow — they are popular in the region," explains Patricia Collins, who is now retired after serving 52 years as director of gardens, education and volun...

Yours is a gift to future generations.MICHAEL MASTERRutledge AvenueCharlestonRepeal ‘CON’ lawThe Oct. 17 Post and Courier reported on the “turf war” in which local hospital systems are engaged to stop each other from building facilities or providing services in Berkeley and Charleston counties.Hospital systems use the state Certification of Need law to stymie competitors’ plans while they proceed with their own.
Charleston hospitals at war over MUSC's plans to build in Berkeley CountyWorse, they use the CON process and considerable resources to keep independent, cost-effective, high quality options from operating in our communities.The reason, as stated in the article, is that competition would have financial consequences for the established companies.We think the consequences of the CON law are far more detrimental to patients than competition might be for feuding health care systems.We have the ninth most restrictive CON law in the country and, as a direct result, insufficient numbers of surgery centers, addiction treatment facilities, birthing centers and other services.South Carolina has an estimated 6,331 fewer hospital beds than needed, 10-19 fewer MRI facilities than needed and 33-44 fewer CT scanners than needed.Rural patients travel farther for routine procedures and treatments, and urban patients are artificially limited to expensive, hospital-owned facilities.Charity medical care, a condition of the CON law, is less in our state than in non-CON states, according to a study by George Mason University Mercatus Center (bit.ly/36tcacm).The end result chokes off options for patients. The state of South Carolina needs to stop empowering the South Carolina Hospital Association and its members at the public’s expense and open the door to competition with a... Oct 10, 2019
Hannah & Matt | Boone Hall Plantation - charlestonweddingsmag.com
Killer Kismet Action
One night out when Hannah was living in Charleston and Matt was here visiting family, both headed for a night out with their respective besties—it just so happened her ride-or-die was dating one his wingman. The entire crew ran into each other on King Street at O-ku, where Matt put the debonair move on Hannah by intentionally spilling his drink on her. “It worked!” laughs Hannah. “We finished the night at [the bar] Republic,” she continues, “and decided we would be marrying each other one day. Girls night turned into the best night of my life!”
Soon after, Hannah moved to Atlanta and since Matt lived in Illinois, the two commuted to see one another every other weekend over the next two-and-a-half years. When Matt bought what Hannah calls a “precious” home in Barrington, Illinois, she moved in, too. They live there today, and Hannah says relocating to be with him was the easiest decision of her life.
Bathroom Break and Bling?
Not long after, it was Memorial Day weekend, and the two were taking a hike in Wisconsin before they were to meet up for “Friday Fish Fry” with his family. After begging for a break, Hannah says, she sat on a bench on an overlook while he disappeared into the trees supposedly to relieve himself. As she took in the views, he was actually setting up a GoPro to record the pending proposal. He came back, pulled out a ring, and … “It was so sweet,” says Hannah. “I am not positive if he fully asked ... Apr 27, 2019
Take a home and garden tour through Eau Gallie - Florida Today
Merritt Island hotel.
The sun room ceiling was inspired by a porch ceiling seen in Charleston and the dining room by a pineapple Alaskan chandelier purchased in Vero Beach. The laundry room was inspired by a screen door purchased at Shelly’s and the downstairs bath by an 1800’s “bowl and pitcher” vanity from France and an old tub once used as a flower pot.
In addition to a visit to the Mitchell House, the $20 donation for the tour includes admission to six other stops, among them the Rossetter House Museum and Gardens.
Descended from 17th century New England pioneers, James Rossetter arrived in Eau Gallie in 1902 to make his mark in the local fishing industry as a charter partner of the Indian River & Lake Worth Fish Company. He bought a small structure on the current site in 1904, but soon needed more room for his expanding family.
Instead of building an addition, Rossetter opted to buy the winter home of wealthy New York industrialist John Aspinwall and move it down the Indian River to his Eau Gallie lot. The Aspinwall house, built in 1890, is now the west wing of the house, which Rossetter connected to the existing building with open-air breezeways.
A visit to the house and grounds transports visitors to the well-heeled Florida of the early 1900s. When the Rossetter sisters willed the property to the Rossetter Foundation, they left not only the house and gardens, but also all the furnishings, including Ella’s 1930s Model A Ford convertible, often used as backdrop for many weddings.
Both women were ahead of their time. Carrie was the first woman agent for Standard Oil of Kentucky and owned several gas stations in ...
