Here’s the Garden City, SC pier at low tide in January. It’s not exactly bikini weather, but the South Carolina beaches are not too shabby in the winter!

I picked up this Blue Girl rose at Lowes the other day to add to my garden. Here is its first bloom. Not exactly blue, but it’s pretty. The plant seems to be doing well, despite Ry using it as a kickstand for his bike.

Myrtle Beach Swan

Myrtle Beach Swan
This is a swan that lives behind the house. Last year it nested here with its mate and they had a ton of cygnets. Its mate did not return with it this year.

South Carolina Walking Fish

The searobin is a fish that lives in the inlets of the Carolinas. You’ve got a good chance of catching them if you’re out with a cast net trying to get shrimp. I’ve had this pair since late fall of 2008. They haven’t tried to eat each other or anything else in the tank. It’s very interesting to watch them forage for food and bury themselves in the sand. Though they spend most of their time on the bottom of the tank, they will swim. That is quite a sight, since they extend their ‘wings’. It isn’t very obvious in the photo, but they have beautiful iridescent eyes. I have not heard them ‘sing’… that may only be something they do if they have access to land.
