I used to love my Garden.
But now, my love is dead:
I found a Bachelor’s Button
In Black-eyed Susan’s Bed.
Brookgreen Gardens, a combination of arts, history and zoo, is located south of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA.
My visit to Brookgreen Gardens was a delight. It is rightly described as “the floral jewel of South Carolina’s coastal community.” Unfortunately, we had just about 3 hours to visit the garden, so we could only do the sculptures. Such fantastic work of art was simply mind-blowing and a delight to the eyes. The Oaks were a sight to see. Some of them we were told were over a 300 years old. Looking at them felt like being in the midst of wisdom and magic, it was like having a role in the “Lord of the Rings”
Unfortunately we couldn’t visit the rice plantation with the slave village and the Native wildlife zoo, which happen to be an integral part of Brookgreen Gardens.
Guides and tours are offered. Entry tickets are good for 7 days. It is advisable to take a number of days to visit the garden as you can’t do a complete tour in one day. If you should find yourself in South Carolina, Brookgreen Gardens is a Must visit, you won’t regret it. I definitely plan on visiting again anytime I am in SC.
