Alas it is all gone now

Sadly this bucolic scene has changed into a two lane road with modern houses lining both sides of the street. This has happened because Summerville is no longer a small Southern town. It is exploding as people who are working in Charleston and who don't want to live in the city are flooding Summerville.

[With any luck, the flooding will counteract the exploding. - Dave]

Spanish moss and live oak trees

rarely seen apart in the Old South. Spanish moss is an epiphyte rather than a parasite, since it doesn't actually get its nutrients from the host plant.
