angel oak tree.

One of the things I really love about South Carolina is how it stays green year-round. The trees lose some leaves but for the most part things are still alive and blooming through the winter. Charleston has a number of parks with beautiful trees, and we finally visited one of the oldest trees in the state last week. The famous Angel Oak Tree in John's Island. The tree is estimated to be 400-500 years old and it is massive.

It's amazing how large the branches are and incredible that it's survived storms and human activity over the years. If you are interested, you can learn more about the tree here.

  1. That place looks so gorgeous! I love that FL stays green all year around too but sometimes I miss the colors from the leaves changing! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
