Charleston is JUST now getting around to giving us some cooler "Fall" temps and it has been wonderful! All around the Lowcountry residents are starting to break out their boots and dust off the sweaters. We hope this weather is here to stay for a while! Many are drawn to relocate to our subtropical climate, with our Summers usually seeing an average of high 70's to low 80's, a Fall of high 50's to high 70's, an average of 47-52 degrees in Winter, and in Spring we circle back to an average of high 50's to low 70's as the blooms of the vibrant azaleas, dogwoods and many other flowers begin to blanket our beautiful city once again. Pictured above is a glimpse at the glorious sunflowers and sunrise over at our friends at Tallulah Flower Farm, which located a little north of Mount Pleasant in the more laid back, rural, fishing town of McClellanville. They bring a host of fresh flowers, bouquets, veggies, eggs and goods to theLand and Sea Market as well as all over the greater Charleston area. Make time to take a drive out to this beautiful farm and find some fresh flowers and goods. Or, if you're looking for that perfect country acreage a ways out from Charleston yet a short drive to all the things, this may be the place for you.
