Brookgreen Gardens was formerly a rice plantation before the Civil War. Afterward, it was too expensive to keep up. Eventually a wealthy couple bought the land and turned it into a combination sculpture garden and botanic garden. The combination below was my favorite. Below that are two more.
|Below are the oak walk and an interesting sculpture. As you walk up on him ... or it ... you think it is someone reading on a bench.|
|On this lake, you need more than this sculpture to watch out for you. On the other side there are signs that say, "For your own safety do not feed the alligators, turtles, or fish." That's really dangerous when the fish might hurt you, much less the killer turtles. ;-)|
