Roses and hostas are featured at a North Carolina rest stop garden.
I have visited Biltmore several times but it is always a treat whenever one visits. It was time for roses, mountain laurel, and rhododendrons while we were there.
The photos do not convey how magnificent the rose garden was that day. We were enveloped in the scent of roses and the bloom was splendid. We were too busy sniffing and looking.
Islander Inn is situated on a narrow strip of land
on a big wide beach
on the North Carolina coast at Ocean Isle.
Dennis, a fishing tourist, pulled a sand shark and a speckled sea trout from the net while we were taking a walk on the beach.
Orton Plantation Garden south of Wilmington, NC
in addition to its lovely gardens has a beautiful chapel.
Just south of Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is the fabulous Brookgreen Gardens, an expansive sculpture garden in a setting of live oaks so old their resurrection fern encrusted limbs rest on the ground.
More water features than you can imagine highlight statues of every size and description. This above ground reservoir supplies the garden’s water as well as houses some giant koi.
Some bronzes are cloistered in an outdoor gallery.
Brick Lattice Walls
I don’t know what it is but the hummingbirds and I like it.
Decorative Iron Gates
The air was fragrant with Confederate jasmine.
Come along and zip through the gardens with me.
We can celebrate in joyous ways because of the service of others
IN HONOR OF MEMORIAL DAY.
