Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet, SC

It was a joy this past Monday to enjoy Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC, with the lovely Robin and my brother Don and his wife, Arvilla.
Brookgreen Gardens is a horticultural and zoological museum, wildlife preserve, and historical site created from what was once three (if I remember correctly) separate plantations (one of which was called Brookgreen, oddly enough).
We couldn't have asked for better weather for our visit, and enjoyed chatting while strolling around the grounds and taking in the scenery and sculpture (more in a subsequent post), flora and fauna.

Gigantic live oaks populate the grounds, and my only disappointment was that the labyrinth was off limits due to high water and the danger of venomous snakes and alligators. Or so the sign said. I decided not to test it.
It was a wonderful time with wonderful people in wonderful surroundings. I only wish we could have stayed longer and gone back (admissions are good for seven days). Alas.
