Photo Challenge – Friend

This week we are asked to share an image of a “friend”.

You’ll find pineapples in most southern homes.  This is a cross stitch I did years ago and it hangs at our back door.  No one uses our front door!

Pineapple Fountain, Charleston, SC

The pineapple symbolizes hospitality and early travelers knew they would be welcome if a pineapple was placed outside the village or home.  A festive meal would be prepared for the traveler and the pineapple would serve as the centerpiece for the table and would later be eaten for dessert.

Charleston was twice voted as the Friendliest City in the US by Conde Nast Magazine.  Come and visit Charleston and you’ll see why.
