When Ignorance Can Be Bliss, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A couple of years ago I spent some time with Tall & Handsome in a condo on St. Simons Island, GA. The space behind the condo was like a little mini jungle…absolutely thick with palmetto palms, vines, pines and undergrowth. One afternoon I decided to step out back and snap a few pictures. I was… Continue reading When Ignorance Can Be Bliss, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Son of Prince, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Impatients are one of my favorite annuals to grow and photograph. And, sometimes when you’re snapping a picture you have the opportunity to capture the unexpected. That was true the day I took this picture. We had a refreshing rain and I was hoping to catch the effects of the rain on the garden. When… Continue reading Son of Prince, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Once Last Glimpse, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Today Tall & Handsome worked on an all day Saturday project…hanging the porch swing for the front porch. It had been setting in our storage room for about two years waiting patiently for its coming out party. Well, today was the day… Most of the day was overcast and at times stormy. Big thunder and… Continue reading Once Last Glimpse, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Did Someone Say Godiva?, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Before anyone says anything we do not make a habit of this and do not give him what I’m about to tell you on a regular basis… …with that said, our dog, Watson thinks chocolate is crack. He can smell it though cellophane bags and goes nuts. If it comes into the house we go… Continue reading Did Someone Say Godiva?, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Just Around the Corner, by Beverly Hicks Burch

When we woke up this morning it was like we had fast forwarded to that glorious time of the year called autumn. Storms had swept through the area last Thursday and Friday and in their wake were temps this morning that erased the miserable, humid days of summer. In a little spot just NE of… Continue reading Just Around the Corner, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Trimaran and Golf, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Today’s picture is another one taken from atop Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island, SC. Tall & Handsome informed me this fine vessel is a trimaran, meaning there is a hull and two outriggers. He is the one with past sailing experience having grown up in Florida. Imagine that combination…a sailing Southwestern cowboy. He’s… Continue reading Trimaran and Golf, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Marina at Harbour Town, SC, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I love this view from atop Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island (SC).  This is the marina in Harbour Town, SC. It was a beautiful warm day and although it may look still and peaceful it was anything but that…if you look at the surface of the water you can see just a subtle… Continue reading Marina at Harbour Town, SC, by Beverly Hicks Burch
