After a recent trip to Charlestown and Beaufort, South Carolina I became fascinated with all the wrought iron design work in the area. Fabulous gates leading into equally fantastic gardens, window boxes, fences and railings were everywhere in the historic areas. All having different, intriciate designs that were original hundreds of years ago. Charlestown is a place that history and heritage are still very much part of everyday life. Charlestown stands as a wonderful model of historic preservation, restoration and artistic expression. I’m planning my next trip there in March for the Festival of Homes and Gardens.
My girlfriend Carolee took these wonderful photographs!
