Fall is such a beautiful time of year here in the lowcountry of South Carolina! The weather cools down (it’s 80 instead of 101) and it makes you want to get outside and create something beautiful. Last week, I decided that we would spruce up the yard and do a little planting around the fountain at the flowershop! We planted some knockout roses, marigolds and crotons. These plants will last long into the fall holiday season and give us lots of bright color! We also found a very interesting “bug”. We named him Charlie……….Paul (our floral designer) found him and discovered that he is a sphinx moth caterpillar! He is very cool! We let him go back into the wilds after we took several pictures of him and yes, he really looks like that!
