Flowers and Food

The azaleas were past their peak in South Georgia, but there were still enough to scent the air in some places. The bushes are often large, what I called azalea trees when I was young. They come in white and every shade of pink to red. There are also native wild types that resemble honeysuckle, such as these found on St. Simons Island, not as flashy as some. White and red ones were also on SSI.  Squares in Savannah had s lot of different types and colors.

The magenta ones were at the Midway Museum site. They coordinated  well with the sock. This is a knitting blog.

There are also orange trees at Ft. Frederica as they were in the original settlement.

Of course, I had to have Barbara Jean’s She Crab Soup.

When in Savannah, we also have to go to Mellow Mushroom. Although this is a chain, each store has its own quirky personality. I always get the pesto and artichoke heart toppings. It had a very nice presentation here.

On the way to South GA, I had a habit of stopping in Weston, GA at the Merritt Pecan Company for gas and/or bathroom breaks. They sell divinity, pecans, etc. and brown sugar pound cake with pecan icing. One slice even made it to Jekyll.
