While driving to Charleston last week, the pines along the highway were draped with tendrals of Carolina Jessamine...a native species and state flower of South Carolina. Ubiquitous as the jessamine...so too is the print below by artist Anne Worsham Richardson
While this print may be found in many South Carolina homes, her artwork has also been collected by Presidents Carter and Regan. She lives outside Charleston where she continues to paint and rehabilitate injured birds.
While in Charleston, I took a quick stroll through the Old Village across the harbor in nearby Mt. Pleasant.
|once a church, now a charming home|
And there draped on a picket fence, a beautiful tangle of Carolina Jessamine
Equally happy to stumble upon the jessamine pictured below. A fresh take on the "Carolina Wren with Yellow Jessamine" by San Francisco based shop, Dutchdoor. Described as "two friends, two antique printing presses, a bunch of ink and a whole lot of paper." Even Ms. Richardson would be impressed!
