Fall in Love with Charleston

Although I look forward every year to spring and to witnessing nature's rebirth through the azaleas, dogwoods, and exquisite colors everywhere, Fall is actually an even more wonderful time in Charleston. The sweet fragrance of tea olive trees on every street, the camellias budding (and soon to be blooming) and the quirky bluish-purple flower-spikes of the chaste trees certainly give plenty of interest to the nature lover. And the low humidity during the months of October and November beckon us all outdoors so that we can enjoy these delights! For the first time in months, you'll find bicyclists and pedestrians who look like they are enjoying their surroundings rather than simply "enduring" the conditions (as is obvious in July in August). So get on out there and take a look around - it's about time!
