Courtyard Garden

Fountain in a Small Garden, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok
(Velvia slide film. Click on image for larger view)



Another picture from Hank's Seafood cookbook portrays a classical fountain in a small courtyard garden. These kinds of green spaces adjacent to homes are a significant part of Charleston's charm. Protected by surrounding houses and vine covered walls, these enclosed gardens usually have something blooming anytime of the year.
