I did get a chance for some travel this month with a trip to Myrtle Beach, SC. In addition to our usual beach trips, we made a brief visit to my favorite Brookgreen Gardens. I really must try to get there when it isn't blazing hot! Though I didn't do much sketching, I did get some photos:
Captured a dragonfly sitting still in one of the beautiful fountains.
Lilies in the children's garden.
Live Oak Allee with gorgeous, colorful caladiums underneath.
And, of course, lots of magnolias, some with their fruits forming.
I loved this curly plant, also in the children's garden. No idea what it is, but it is wonderfully whimsical!
We also had a chance to visit Alligator Adventure, which had quite a lot to see! Alligators, crocodiles, birds, and other reptiles. We even saw them do an alligator feeding.
Baby alligator sunning on some roots.
Lots of young alligators hanging out in the hot weather.
We even saw albino alligators!
It was another great trip, and I look forward to going again! Now, back to the drawing board... :)
