Grab a Tall Glass of Sweet Tea, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Could anything possibly scream old Deep, Deep South more than this picture? Clues? The old Southern live oak trees (quercus virginiana). And the Spanish Moss. Spanish moss isn’t really a moss, but a living, flowering plant. It’s an angiosperm from the bromeliad family. It tends to favor warm, humid conditions and that’s why it’s so… Continue reading Grab a Tall Glass of Sweet Tea, 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

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.

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
