50 Shades of Sunrise

South Carolina - Palmetto State

Sent by: 5 is Alive
From: Greenville, South Carolina, USA
Notes: I'm not sure if this card was part of a swap or not.  The message on the back just says "Happy Valentine's Day", so that's nice.  The sabal palmetto is the state tree of South Carolina, which makes sense, as the state's nickname is The Palmetto State.  It would be weird to call  it the Palmetto State if the state tree was a maple or something!  It's also the state tree of Florida, but it is more closely associated with South Carolina not only because of the nickname, but also because the tree appears on the state flag and state seal.
