A Southern Beauty, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The Oak Leaf Hydrangea are blooming up on my little mountain and I have several patches in my yard that I have nurture along and they are blooming now. Rumor has it that one of the Alridges from the Aldridge Nursery fame here in Birmingham was hiking along a utility right away one day and… Continue reading A Southern Beauty, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Darien Methodist Church, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Thanks to John Wesley and the Scots, the Methodist flourished in this part of Georgia. As a matter of fact, John Wesley himself visited the Scots in Darien in 1737 and as a result had an indirect affect in helping this little church be built. It was the faith he built and stirred in the… Continue reading Darien Methodist Church, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Next time you’re having a particularly difficult day at work, home or where ever, take a look at this picture. I don’t know about you, but I find this an amazing gob of mess of lines, strings and nets. I could never make heads or tell out of any of it.

And, Where Do You Get Your Shrimp? by Beverly Hicks Burch

And how do you get you shrimp? I take mine Scampi, broiled, boiled and any tasty way I can find them… I have a sneaking suspicion most of think our shrimp come from sources like the picture above. But, that’s not necessarily so. A lot of shrimp we buy and eat nowadays are pond raise… Continue reading And, Where Do You Get Your Shrimp? by Beverly Hicks Burch

Amazing Grace, by Beverly Hicks Burch

On Mother’s Day, Tall & Handsome and I decided to take out on a little Sunday jaunt. It was a combination “Mother’s Day, (his) birthday and we need a distraction” venture. (I’ll also admit to a little outlet shopping…) I had heard that we needed to visit a little town called Darien (GA). One of… Continue reading Amazing Grace, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Fiery Harbinger of Warm Weather, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I have to admit, my horticulture background has left me stumped as to what this bright harbinger of warm weather is named. After doing some research, all I can say is that the foliage seems to eliminate several things I thought it might be. It took this picture on Mother’s Day down along the waterfront… Continue reading Fiery Harbinger of Warm Weather, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The Cool Dude from Team GSI, by Beverly Hicks Burch

My Tall & Handsome…the cool dude of Team GSI.. This was taken after the Race for the Cure in Savannah. I was Team GSI’s “survivor”…surviving 29 1/2 cancer free years of non-smoking lung cancer in my right lung and 16 1/2 cancer free years of non-smoking lung cancer in my left lung. Yes, people, it… Continue reading The Cool Dude from Team GSI, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Windy Day at Fort Pulaski, by Beverly Hicks Burch

You may not be able to tell from this picture, but it was extremely windy…especially up on top of Fort Pulaski (GA) when this picture was taken. It was taking a lot of “mystical hat holding onto” powers for T & H’s dapper cover to stay in place. I recommended Velcro but that went over… Continue reading Windy Day at Fort Pulaski, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Cockspur Island Lighthouse (GA), by Beverly Hicks Burch

This is Cockspur Island Lighthouse, one of the Southern lighthouses of the USA. It’s set on a little piece of land between Fort Pulaski (GA) and Tybee Island (GA) in the Savannah River. As you can see, the lighthouse is in disrepair. I can’t recall ever seeing a lighthouse in this state of ruin. If… Continue reading Cockspur Island Lighthouse (GA), by Beverly Hicks Burch
