While we are preparing for Hurricane Hanna....

While we here in Charleston are preparing for Hurrican Hanna to come tomorrow Friday, making landfall at the Coast of the Carolinas, I'll leave you here with some nice photos from a pretty park in Summerville, SC.

This park is way more beautiful in spring time when everywhere the Azaleas are blooming. That's why has this park also the name "Azalea Park".

There are little ponds with cute sculptures, like this frog.

I love frogs! Should I kiss him now...? :-)

Or this pretty sculpture of the girl with a bird in her hand....

The girl sculpture is overlooking the park area and in the little pond here I have seen many gold fishes swimming around

The bench and the dog - there is a story behind that dog, you can read it on the website link below

Today, Azalea Park features butterfly ponds, an amphitheater,
ornamental bridges, a water garden, artistic
sculptures and gazebos. The Cuthbert Community
Center, built in 1975 and named for former Mayor
Cuthbert, stands in the center of the park. The park
and the mini-gardens within it are usually at their peak
of beauty during the Flowertown Festival

Azalea Park is also the site of the Flowertown Festival, held annually on the first week of April. This event, which features arts & crafts, food, entertainment, rides and commercial booths, draws approximately 300,000 to Summerville.

Don't kiss the frog! You might be shocked if the the prince is an ugly twat. You husband might be jealous if it is a handsome prince.

Take care for the hurricane and protec yourself well.

Hallo Peter,

du meinst also besser nicht...? Ich wuerde mir die Finger verbrennen damit?Wahrscheinlich hast du recht, denn was fange ich denn nur mit einem huebschen Mann an...?

Danke fuer deinen Kommentar und wir werden bei Hanna nun nicht evakuieren, wharscheinlich aber bei Ike, der naechste Sturm im Anzug. Bin froh, wenns mal November ist!

Hi Sue!
Hopefully you won't get hurt by Hanna...
It's a beautiful park and lovely pictures, as always! Also loved the Spanish Moss and the wonderful lamp on your wordless Sunday!!

I’ll finally get some days off this year; not much, just from Friday night (September 5th) through Monday morning (September 15th). But I don’t leave you empty hands: a beautiful beach and lots of champagne wait for you at Blogtrotter. Enjoy!

Oh sue I hope all will be ok with you. I hope that it will miss you.

Such a pretty park i'm loving all the statues. The frog is so cute. It must be such a lovely place to relax in.

My thoughts are with you all there.

Thank you Jenty! It's raining just now like crazy....

Thank you Carol for your kind words. We are safe just now, the storm is expected to come in the night some when, I don't like that idea to much!
