The theme of Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet is one of beauty and majesty. Along with the beautiful gardens and live oaks draped in moss the gardens boast hundreds upon hundreds of sculptures and statues. The beautiful art features are housed both within buildings and outside in the massive gardens and each has a description that details the sculpture and artist and pertinent facts.
Chris and I wandered around and I took a lot of pictures. Today I will share just a few but stayed tuned because there will undoubtedly be more posts.
I loved the Ram sculpture and I suspect it is the Tarheel in me that drew me to it.
Then there was Samson and the lion. Pretty amazing detail on this one that kept me looking at it for quite awhile.
Found close to one of the many spreading live oaks is a little area with 4 statues facing one another. These four captivated me for some reason.
Maybe my favorite was the following sculpture that we saw when first entering the garden area. I loved this guy.
Just look at that face. Isn’t it wonderful? I absolutely loved this one and of course had to sit next to him for awhile.
And finally a cute little cupid on a turtle because why not?
Thanks for taking a walk with me today. There will be more but until then have a great day. Don’t forget to leave a comment for our Brookgreen Gardens
