Alrighty! Out my kitchen window I see signs of hope. My Loquat tree has borne two fruit. Whoo Hoo! Now... that's not much, but it IS a start. The first image is from the "FastGrowingTrees.com" website. That is what I am hoping for... someday. The tree is known for its fruit AND its leaves.
Loquats are unusual among fruit trees in that the flowers appear in the autumn or early winter, (lovely fragrance) and the fruits are ripe at any time from early spring to early summer. So I guess mine are right on track. BUT we had an extended and unseasonably COLD snap this past winter which killed off many of the buds.
More from Wikipedia:
"The tree is native to China and has been cultivated there for over a thousand years. It has also become naturalised in Georgia, Armenia, Afghanistan, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bermuda, Chile, Kenya, Lebanon, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, South Africa, the whole Mediterranean Basin, Pakistan, New Zealand, Réunion, Tonga, Central America, Mexico, South America, and warmer parts of the United States (Hawaii, California, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina)."
I also saw Loquat trees on a recent visit to South Korea to visit my daughter and Loquat fruit in the 5-Day Market on the island of Jeju.
Now I am on a mission to try Loquat Jam and tea!

pawleys island art under the oaks
The 5th Annual Art Under the Oaks Art Show and Fundraiser provided for a nice afternoon. Canvas art of all types, jewelry, musicians and FOOD! The event was a fundraiser for All 4 Paws Animal Rescue. I have never seen so many gourmet dog treat vendors. The Hammock Coast LOVES animals. I love all of the "crafty stuff." Click on the thumbnail image to check out a full size image of the fairy garden stakes and the wreaths all made from your grandmother's old pins and jewelry. Wow.

a day in charleston
One of the things I LOVE to do when friends come to visit is to go into Charleston for a day. It s such a thrilling, historic and cultural city. From that first moment we cross over the bridge... I can't wait to get downtown to walk around. We took a private carriage ride and our guide lectured us about different facets of the city both from a historical and modern day point-of-view. We popped into a bar on Broad Street... the walls were covered with dollar bills. Our luncheon was at S.N.O.B. Slightly North of Broad. Only 90-minutes from the Hammock Coast... it's an easy day trip.

I treasure my time in New England. But there is SOMETHING about THAT BRIDGE that makes me feel like I am on my way home when I see it.

PINCH ME... ITS FEBRUARY!
It seems the world has had a long love affair with the camellia flower. My journey began in the Spring of 2018. As a native New Englander, for as long as I can remember, my February flowers were usually nestled in deep slumber under a blanket of snow over a foot thick. I could hardly wait until the snowdrops appeared, or the daffodils of a warm March. I always associated Spring flowers with Easter.
But here in South Carolina, everything begins to pop in February!
Along the Hammock Coast, I could not help but marvel at the prolifically colorful blossoms with a medium thick, creamy petal texture much like a gardenia. They came in all shades of red, coral and pink at the golf courses and around neighboring homes. The petals are a deep green and they launch on the landscape as early as January after a very warm spell. But February is when nature gives us the greatest eye-full of color. Last year, we decided to plant our own. We planted two double pink and a double coral/raspberry. in person, the buds of the latter look lie they are on fire. I am afraid my camera does not do the incredible color of the petals justice. But suffice it to say... I am a fan.
I took a few minutes to research a bit more about the camellia flower.
"Camellias were cultivated in the gardens of China and Japan for centuries before they were seen in Europe. The German botanist Engelbert Kaempfer reported that the "Japan Rose", as he called it, grew wild in woodland and hedgerow, but that many superior varieties had been selected for gardens. He was told that the plant had 900 names in Japanese.
The first living camellias seen in England were a single red and a single white, grown and flowered in his garden at Thorndon Hall, Essex, by Robert James, Lord Petre, among the keenest gardeners of his generation, in 1739. His gardener James Gordon was the first to introduce camellias to commerce, from the nurseries he established after Lord Petre's premature death in 1743, at Mile End, Essex, near London.
With the expansion of the tea trade in the later 18th century, new varieties began to be seen in England, imported through the British East India Company. The Company's John Slater was responsible for the first of the new camellias, double ones, in white and a striped red, imported in 1792.
The camellia was imported from England to America in 1797 when Colonel John Stevens brought the flower as part of an effort to grow attractions within Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey.
By 1819, twenty-five camellias had bloomed in England. By the 1840s, the camellia was at the height of its fashion as the luxury flower.
The Camellia in Popular Culture:
Augusta National Golf Club's 10th hole is named "Camellia", one of many references to the plant nursery originally on the site of the course.
In the book To Kill a Mockingbird, Jem destroys Mrs. Dubose's camellia bushes after she insults his family, yet he later receives a camellia bud from the dying woman.
Alexandre Dumas wrote the novel and stage adaptation The Lady of the Camellias, wherein the flower is a symbol of a courtesan's sexual availability.
A white camellia flower is an iconic symbol of Chanel haute couture, a tradition started by Coco Chanel herself who identified with the heroine of Dumas' work.
White camellias became a symbol of the women's suffrage movement in New Zealand and the flower appears on the country's ten-dollar note.
The following cities are nicknamed the "Camellia City" of each state:
Thomson, Georgia is nicknamed the "Camellia City of the South."
The camellia is the state flower of Alabama.
Temple City, California's slogan since 1944 has been "Temple City, Home of Camellias", and the city has become well known for its Camellia Festival."

rising with the sun
For nearly a decade, working on the morning news in Connecticut I would often be reminded that those people who slept past sunrise were missing out on HALF of what Mother Nature was gifting us everyday. I try to get out to see the sunrise at Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet with friends and clients as often as I possibly can. Having a special occasion to celebrate? Let's start our day with a sunrise! The park opens promptly at 6am every day. Luckily, I don't have to twist too many arms.
Horry Georgetown Home Builders Association held its 43rd annual Spring Home Show this past weekend. I was looking for bathroom remodeling and concrete driveway replacement options. What I found was a whole lot more. I brought home a bag full of "stuff" to go through and reconnected with some friends.
The show had more than 150 exhibitors displaying their products and services. It was perfect for me to do some research.
The admission was $5. Worth every penny. Despite the pouring rain outside, I found a few touches of spring and buckets of inspiration.
If you are looking for a “spooky” destination, look no farther than Conway, South Carolina!
Starting October 1, 2022 the town has changed its name to “Halloween, South Carolina." The City of Conway made the big announcement in late September to rename the city Halloween, SC for the “spooky” season.
Conway leaders have been planning for months and working hard to make the city a destination for this Halloween season.
City crews have come out for years to hang pumpkins from the trees in the downtown area.
Mayor Barbara Blain-Bellamy made the big announcement at Conway City Hall.
"If we are right in our predictions, Conway or Halloween will be known nationwide and beyond over the next several years as the place to visit during each October," the mayor said. "There are contests galore, there are events at least every week. Our businesses as I said, just now, and institutions and churches are joining in. There will be something for people to come out to downtown bring their families and their children and have fun the entirety of the month of October."
The ceremonial name change will last throughout the month.
The photos below are something I took on October 27, 2021 on a drive back to Connecticut.
For the last three years, the city has taken its Halloween vibe and street décor very seriously. Coming over the Conway bridge into downtown, drivers can spot pumpkin baskets hanging from the trees lining Main Street. Skeletons creep at the front of city hall, which is covered in cobwebs. And witch hats hang across the breezeway beside city hall.
"We heard, 'the pumpkins make me happy,' ' the pumpkins make me smile,'" she said of the decor.
Sales at local businesses have increased, Blain-Bellamy said, which she attributes, in part, to the decorations.
Personally, I love visiting Conway. The city has some great spirit.
And the home prices aren’t bad either. Get in touch if you would like to look around!

2022 HURRICANe SEASON
South Carolina Emergency Management is a fantastic resource. They have an app you should have on your phone. The website goes over the language of hurricanes and tropical storms in a very easy to digest manner. Information is available outlining the evacuation process should things develop. The site also has information for evacuating pets and how to build your family emergency kit with a downloadable checklist.
A visit to this site is a MUST for every responsible family living along the Grand Strand.
KNOW YOUR ZONES
Hurricane Ian is about to batter the Florida Gulf Coast in the next week, and the potential for this storm after it makes landfall is still uncertain, but our area could see some heavy rain and wind on the back side from Ian. With that in mind I thought it would be appropriate to show you the South Carolina Emergency Management Evacuation map. Look at the map and decipher where you are in relation to the zone.
This is a great website to learn all you can about hurricane and tropical storm preparedness: hurricane.sc/know
Hurricane Season Preparedness:
1. KNOW YOUR EVACUATION ZONES AND ROUTES.
2. GATHER YOUR EMERGENCY SUPPLIES NOW. DO NOT WAIT FOR A STORM TO BE ON THE WAY.
Sunday, September 18th, 2022 the 2nd Annual First Responder Appreciation Boat Parade will launch.
The outing was founded and spearheaded by Brian Peters, a North MB resident and business executive who is passionate about recognizing the many contributions of our military.
"On 9/11 we promised ourselves we would never forget. This is the fulfillment of my promise."
He goes on to say, "This is our way of honoring the 1st responders and heroes on the 21st anniversary of 9-11, and the heroic 1st responders of today!"
I have a few friends that were on boats for the 2021 kick-off event and they said the passion was exhilarating.
Last year's parade was the inaugural launch. 1600 boats participated in the event. Thousands of residents and visitors showed up to watch the parade from various viewing stations along the 13-mile stretch of waterway..... This year patriotic boaters of the grand strand will have a chance to join in the parade starting at 12 noon 1 mile south of the 501-bridge at the Arrowhead Golf Course proceeding north to the Barefoot Landing resort where the parade will end.
There will be many great viewing spots....
Arrowhead golf course, Boathouse Restaurant, Grand Dunes, Grand Dunes Marina, Anchor Cafe, the public access boat ramp behind Bass Pro Shop, Taco Mundo, Lulu's, Greg Norman's and the Marina Bar and Grill. Not to mention the various subdivisions along the waterway.
The parade ends in front of the flag at Barefoot Landing.
Peters says this is not a political event, "It's all about patriotism, we are all Americans first!"
Decorate your boat as you wish but make sure the American Flag flies the highest!
"Let's show appreciation for today's 1st responders, and all who serve along with active-duty military, and veterans!"

Photographer Jim Arnold has done such a splendid job of capturing the afternoon beauty of the Sea Oats in the sand dunes of North Litchfield Beach. This photo was taken by him on July 16, 2022. (To see more of his great work please visit "See Jim Run" Photography on Facebook)
Late summer is when this plant plant really holds court along the South Carolina coast. Many walk right buy the oats, but do not really know why they are so significant to the South Carolina coastal infrastructure. I thought I would fill you in a bit.
For much of the growing season the Sea Oat plant (Uniola paniculata) is a beautiful sea green in color. As summer begins to wind down into autumn, the seed heads begin to show their true splendor. The color turns from green to a deep golden brown. The monochromatic contrast against the sand is breathtaking if you happen to capture it on your camera. The oats are not only recognized for their late summer beauty, it is their very structure in the sand that makes conservationists dedicate hours to their preservation.
As a crucial component of the South Carolina hurricane defense strategy, the oats help deter damage from tropical storms. The plants are used in sand stabilization projects because their long root structure firmly holds loose sand. In fact, these oats play a critical role in hurricane damage mitigation throughout most of the southeastern united states, eastern Mexico and some Caribbean islands.
It is the large seed heads (oats) and tall leaves that trap windblown sand to help build and protect dunes. Sand dune growth and protection is another chapter I will write about at another time, but suffice it to say, Myrtle Beach takes its dunes pretty seriously. Don't be surprised if a local starts yelling at you if you are caught picking the oats. They are as precious as gold for the Hammock Coast landscape.
Picking or disturbing sea oats is punishable by fines in SC.
Sea Oats are protected by law in South Carolina.

Thinking about a remodel
I don't know when my fascination began with blue and white decor. For as long as I can remember, I have devoured the timeless look in every publication and decorating book I could get my hands on. My collections are numerous. I have been thinking about a living room renovation over the next two years and the pictures below from CitrinelLiving by Tamara Anka have become my favorites.
Are you a fan of blue and white?
Each week a new bush comes into full bloom. The other day I opened the front door at about 7 am to go on my morning bike trek and the sweet scent stopped me in full stride on my way to the garage. The air was heavy and the scent was heavenly. I had also never seen a Magnolia flower up close. They were the size of small dinner plates with ivory/cream colored soft petals. Spring along the Grand Strand is spectacular. Take time to breathe it in.
Here's What I see

wHAT IS THAT???
Every city has its quirky architecture. I am going to tell you about one notable structure along the Grand Strand.
With the anniversary of Hurricane Hugo coming up in a few days I thought this story was appropriate to tell.
Imagine you are visiting the Marsh Walk in Murrells Inlet. Looking east, out across Goat Island toward the Gulf Stream Café, you will see this oddly shaped structure. You can’t miss it. It looks like something out of a science fiction movie. Or perhaps, the 20th century embodiment of George Jetson’s cartoon home. Either way, three letters come to mind: U. F. O.
Your eyes are seeing correct. The Garden City, SC peninsula is home to one of the last remaining UFO houses built by Miami Architect Peter Vander Klout in 1976. The visionary builder constructed only a handful of these circular domiciles, but the lore surrounding the homes are numerous.
Owned by the Graham family of Gallivants Ferry, The 1800 square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
When originally built, similar homes in Florida were in stark contrast to the mega mansions that lined the shoreline. In Garden City, the structure was a futuristic oddity because it was surrounded by the traditional 50’s and 60’s beach cottages.
Imagine, beach bungalows… and a spaceship.
The locals rolled their eyes.
Thanks to its unique design, the UFO home was built to be able to endure winds as high as 300 mph, as well as Category 5 hurricanes. One of Klout’s structures near Homestead, Florida withstood the ravages of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Hurricane Andrew hit the area with violent ferocity as a Category 5 hurricane. Enduring sustained wind speeds as high as 165 mph, the home stood the test.
On September 22, 1989, Hurricane Hugo made landfall between Myrtle Beach and Charleston SC. The Category 4 storm with 140 mph winds demolished the South Carolina coastline. Dozens of homes were completely wrecked on The Garden City Peninsula and hundreds more severely damaged. The Garden City UFO home suffered no structural damage.
The locals did not roll their eyes any more. They were crying as their homes were torn to shreds and reduced to rubble. As for the concrete behemoth… barely a scratch. Folks seem to endure the oddity now-a-days and are happy to point it out on a tour.
A July 24, 2020 story in the Orlando Weekly newspaper cited that according to the book “Lost Miami: Stories and Secrets behind Magic City Ruins,” Klout’s homes were surrounded in local lore. “Over the years these saucer-shaped homes inspired quite a few urban legends revolving around everything from mob bosses to nudist colonies, and pretty much always garnered nicknames like "The UFO House," or "The Flying Saucer House."
Klout is not the only architect with an out-of-this-world vision for what homes could look like. On Loveproperty.com you can check out “Amazing” homes that are Out-of-This-World in locations, quite literally, all over the world.
You can visit these web links to learn more about Klout’s hurricane proof “UFO” houses. And DON'T FORGET, when you are visiting the Marsh Walk in Murrells Inlet to look east at the concrete mushroom!

Bike Week Frolicking on the Grand Strand
Bike Week was back in action along the Grand Strand from May 7-16, 2021. We could see the packed parking lots at the Harley Davidson bike shop, The Indian Cycles bike shop and of course Suck Bang Blow! In fact, we could hear the music from the marsh this year at our back door. I just smiled. Glad to see the bikers back and revving up the economy down here. The images I have posted are of my cousins enjoying themselves two years ago.
From the website:
Each year hundreds of thousands flock to the Grand Strand for a celebration of big engines, flashy rides and wind in your hair known as Myrtle Beach Bike Week. For more than 75 years bikers have been hitting the beach to enjoy all our area has to offer including top-notch entertainment, amazing weather and some of the best biker bars this side of the Mississippi.
Myrtle Beach Bike Week takes place along the entire Grand Strand from North Myrtle Beach to Georgetown in mid-to-late May every year. The Spring Rally, which has been held the same time every year since 1940 is a celebration of the joys of riding a motorcycle. The bikes are EVERYWHERE! There are some truly magnificent machines showcased in every color and configuration imaginable. The chrome is gleaming. People come from all over the country to ride along route 17 and enjoy the coastline of South Carolina. Residents come out in their golf carts and park along Route 17 to enjoy the pageantry and parade of cycles on display.
Area restaurants roll out the red carpet for bikers along with the local bars and night clubs in the area. Murrells Inlet, just 15 miles south of Myrtle Beach, is a major hot spot for bikers. We ended up at an infamous bike bar named Suck Bang Blow.
Now before you get too excited about the name, here is what urban Dictionary says:
The cycles in which every internal combustion engine goes through to make power it "SUCK"s in air and fuel mixture it "BANG"s when compressed and ignited and the "BLOW"s it out in the exhaust. That is where the bar got its name.
My cousins were visiting from Indiana and when I mentioned that Bike Week would be taking place there was a chorus of “OH YES! LET’S GO!”
So off to SBB we went.
We had a lot of fun. Suffice it to say, next year, I will dress more appropriately.

The Boat Parade is BACK!
From WPDE 15 News:
MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WPDE) — Officials announced the 38th Annual Murrells Inlet Boat Parade will happen on the Fourth of July in 2021.
Lee Hewitt, co-chairman of the Murrells Inlet Boat Parade announced the details on Friday.
The parade will take place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 4 at the point of Garden City Beach and make its way through Murrells Inlet.
The theme for 2021 is Stars, Stripes and Fireworks and to encourage more participation, the committee decided to waive the boat fee entry.
Viewing areas will be along the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, Belin United Methodist Church, and Morse Park Landing.
T-shirts will be available for $10 starting one month before the event and proceeds will benefit the Belin United Methodist Church Boy Scout Troop 396, Hewitt said.
Participants and spectators are also reminded to protect our coastal wetlands and refrain from littering during this event. Boat and dock decorating participants are asked to avoid incorporating elements into their design that involves throwing objects into the water, including water balloons, which pollute the environment and are harmful to the local wildlife.
Murrells Inlet Easter Sunrise 2019
Covid-19 has changed a lot of things. Including Easter sunrise services on the marsh. We chose not to attend this year, but I wanted to give you a look back at 2019. Here's to brighter days ahead. Amen!
The service began at 6:30 am at the Belin Methodist Church (Pronounced: Blane like "Plane") on Route 17 Business in Murrells Inlet. Hundreds gathered. Were they ALL Methodist? I don't think so. I don't think anyone cared. We were all just human beings coming together to celebrate a sunrise, renewal and rebirth, and the joyous communion in our hearts as they lifted in song and prayer on a spectacular Sunday morning.
This is my second year attending.
Something magical happens.
I carry the memory in me for weeks afterward.
Even the Weeds are Beautiful!
Driving along Highway 17, southbound, toward Pawleys Island you are likely to encounter incredible displays of lush purple flower blossoms hanging off the trees. The purple clusters that pop up along the highways and back roads are magnificent to take in and remind you that nature is, indeed, random and breathtaking. I also find the same clusters along McDowell Shortcut on my bi-weekly recycling trip across town and scattered in among the azaleas of various homes in Murrells Inlet near the marina.
While memories of the gardening antics around the home of actress Marcia Cross a.k.a. "Bree" to a legion of Desperate Housewives fans comes to mind on Wisteria Lane, I thought it would be worth looking into a bit more for the passer by.
Wisteria is actually part of the legume family. That's right, bean pods. Think pea pods and sweet peas and you are on the right track. There are 10 known species of the woody, climbing plant. And while they are related to pea pods, don't eat them. Many of the species can be poisonous. Wisteria originated in southeast Asia and was brought over the the United States after 1816 as a decorative, horticultural addition to southern landscapes.
Wisteria, is very hardy and fast-growing. It can grow in fairly poor-quality soils, but prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil. It thrives in full sun. Wisterias climb by twining their stems around any available support. They can climb as high as 20 m (66 ft) above the ground and spread out 10 m (33 ft) laterally.
In the Southeastern US, Wisteria is considered an invasive species due to their ability to overtake and choke out other native plants. All of this makes perfect sense as to why Wisteria adorns the porches and pergolas of Charleston in the Spring. It also answers why it looks like it is latching on to other trees and tall shrubbery in Murrells Inlet. It grows by climbing anything that it can latch on to.
BEST Recycling Center - Ever!
I am a recycling snob. As the station's environmental reporter at WTNH in New Haven, Connecticut for many years, I had an opportunity to see that state's recycling mandates put into action at the ground level and report on it every week. Recycling in Connecticut is costly. The cost to get rid of stuff carries a hefty price tag for residents.
I was brought up in a home where nothing went to waste. We recycled EVERYTHING. My dad built wooden box and chicken wire bins in the ground with lids. We threw our shredded newspapers in the bins along with all of our food waste. Suffice it to say... we had the BIGGEST night crawlers and earthworms and were never at a loss when family or friends wanted to go fishing. We composted everything. We donated.
So imagine my surprise (and delight) when I moved here to South Carolina.
I am incredibly impressed with the recycling center at McDowell Shortcut in Murrells Inlet. It is the cleanest and MOST ORGANIZED recycling center I have ever seen. I stopped to speak with one of the workers. He told me that all 24 recycling stations are paid at the county level through the taxpayers of Horry County. Just $6.00 per house hold. If I had been sitting in a chair I would have fallen off my seat. That is incredible. Just SIX DOLLARS from every household gets the job done.
The center takes everything. FOR FREE. TV'S, MONITORS, COMPUTERS, BULKY WASTE, COUCHES, METAL, FURNITURE... EVERYTHING!

a good year of golf: 2019
A Golden Nugget in Waverly Bay!
I ride my bike nearly every day in Prince Creek. My usual trek is between 8 and 10 miles. On this particular afternoon I saw a FOR SALE sale sign in Waverly Bay. I am always curious about the homes in my back yard, so I stopped in. First off, the taxes on this 4200 square foot (Under roof) home are listed at $1355 per year. Yes, you read that right. YOU CAN afford more home for your hard earned money here!
Images courtesy of The Litchfield Co. RE Prince Creek
Waverly Bay is a custom home neighborhood situated behind the gates of The Bays of Prince Creek. The amenities of this area are outstanding. They include two pools, tennis/pickle ball courts, clubhouse, playground, soccer field, picnic pavilion, several fire pits and much more. The HOA is listed at $146 per month. That is very reasonable for what you get.
Another thing I love is the easy access to both TPC Blvd as well as Prince Creek Parkway and RT. 707.
This home has all the features I expected in a custom home, and a few more! The kitchen has custom cabinets with roll-out trays in the lower cabinets. It has beautiful granite counter tops including a large island and breakfast area, also a heated tile floor for those "cold" mornings. COLD is a rather relative term for me as a New Englander.
CLICK HERE to learn more about this lovely home in Prince Creek!
Below are MY photos from touring the house. But, you have to see it to appreciate the finer details like the built in cabinets, spacious closets (everywhere) and molding throughout.
I loved the lighted stair assist and balconies off the second level. There is this huge room tucked away on the second floor, a large bonus room just waiting to be converted into a media room, fourth bedroom, craft studio or kids playroom. Listed by The Litchfield Co, I would love to show you this home. Here's a feature I found very forward thinking: the owner outfitted the bonus room with a versa lift from the garage. How wonderful not to have to carry heavy things up the stairs! I would make that my office in a heartbeat! That, or a personal yoga retreat!
The very large (21 X 15) covered back porch features a built in outdoor kitchen (YES! I love this too!) and views of the pond and fountain are spectacular. The back yard is also fenced. This is must see home in beautiful surroundings with the Marsh Walk of Murrells Inlet and Huntington Beach State Park less then 3 miles away!
