Ron and I did as little labor today as possible, except for grocery shopping, we pretty much totally took the day off.  I drew a Palmetto tree today for my second tree of the month.  We have so many of these all over Charleston... it is on the state flag as well.  The Americans in Charleston held off the British assault during the Revolutionary War, in a fort built with these trees and sand.  The trees are spongy and absorbed the shock of the cannon balls much to the surprise of the British war ships, and the delight of the locals behind them.
