Spring has Sprung.....

Hi everyone.....


Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair
and
let's chat awhile.

Spring has sprung.....
and it's no more evident than when
strolling through the beautiful
Brookgreen Gardens.


The grass is greening up and
the trees are starting to fill with
little spring green leaves.


The temperatures are in the mid 70's
with lots of sunshine and
balmy breezes.

Brookgreen Gardens is a beautiful
statuary park in Murrell's Inlet.


It's abounding beauty and peaceful presence
makes for an awesome afternoon
walk.


I love ornamental cabbage  -
they were in abundance
as were
other ornamental vegetables.....


and beautiful flowers
I do not know the names of yet....



But one of my all time favorites
were in abundance


The glorious Camellia..
I fell in love with these at
Lew Gardens in Orlando, Florida.
Their gardens were the most awesome
I have ever seen.
Camellia bushes 10 feet and more tall.


Brookgreen also has a nature trail to walk
But, be ware
there may be alligators, venomous snakes,
and stinging insects.


and sure enough....
not too far into the walk
we happened on.......


A small gator in this patch of grass.
You can see Big C trying to get a
pic of him.
He was a little photo shy that day....


These are wild azaleas blooming throughout the area.
Our "brisk" afternoon walk
generated a large appetite for each of us.
So we decided to head into
Myrtle Beach to the
Market Commons.


We stopped at
Nacho Hippo
for a delicious and grandiose
plate of nachos.
D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S


As you can tell by the smiles on our faces....


What a great way to end a great day.
Next time you'll have to join us.
We'd love to have you.


Bye for now......
