Out in the lowcountry...

On the way out to Edisto, SC, for Memorial Weekend, I stopped here at King's Market.
Produce Stands bring an instant smile to my face, I just love the atmosphere; the fields of flowers, fruit, veggies, stray Cats napping, Chickens and Roosters, adorable big Dogs in truck beds, the people are always friendly, the store is just laid back..
I could spend all day at a Produce Stand!

What about you, do you like Produce Stands?

I'll be eating tasty food in ...

Charleston, South Carolina, at the Bluerose Cafe'.
It's a little Irish Cafe'.
I've said this once, but I'm going to say it again, if you are ever in Charleston, you have to try this place out! It's called Bluerose Cafe', they serve homemade specials every night on the chalkboard. Their menu alone, is just amazing! I always have a craving for their Flounder, whether it's pan-seared, grilled, or baked, it is divine! My mum loves to order the Veggie Burger, with Homemade Fries that will knock your socks off!
This place has the best service, out of any restaurant I have ever been to!
Every time I took a few sips of water, the waiter would be coming around the corner filling up my glass, he asked how we were doing three times, he brought are food out in a matter of minutes, I mean this guy was awesome!
I think it's funny how, when we used to pass this place up, it would be so packed, you couldn't even getting a parking spot. But when my mum and I go, we seem to be the only people eating, there might be two-three other tables, but in the end we are the only ones! It's not weird at all, as a matter of fact, I love it! You can actually hear yourself think, or hear the other person talking.
It's such a great place to go with friends, or on a date, hey or even with your mum! If you don't like sitting inside, they have a nice front porch with huge umbrellas, and pretty flowers surrounding the tables. It's such a great place to go, it's a little treasure in Charleston!

I have always wanted to try their desert, but I always end up with a full tummy!
 One of these days, I will just go in their to order a tasty treat! If their dinners are amazing, then I'm sure the desserts are, too!

In the garden..

There's something lurking on my Dill, in my garden..
It's fifteen little Swallowtail Caterpillars!
Over the past week and a half, I have been watching these little guys, they started down low in the Dill, and started moving their way to the top.
They were so little at first, then as the days went by, they started getting chubby, just eating away at the tasty Dill.
This morning, I walked out to visit the garden and noticed that all but three have left.. I wonder where they went. I hope birds didn't get them. There are three left, two are already in cocoons, and one is in the process.
It is such a gift to see these little Caterpillars, I'm so blessed they ended up in my garden!
It would be so nice, if I could see them turn into beautiful Butterflies!
But until then, I will just have to keep an eye on them, and a camera close by!
