Friday, Bob and I went to Brookgreen Gardens on our way home from Myrtle Beach. Brookgreen Gardens was the home of the Huntingtons and houses the wonderful sculptures by Anna Hyatt Huntington and other marvelous sculptures they collected.
It is a garden, and even in the winter, it has lots of happiness potential.
There are berries and camellias all winter long. There were even some roses and sage flowers of some sort. And pansies, of course. It wouldn't be winter without plantings of pansies.
The sculpture and the trees are beautiful.
Diana and her hound... she's here a lot.
We had a lovely lunch in the middle of the garden in the old kitchen building. I ate a vegetable wrap with dill sauce and iced peach tea.
It was an afternoon full of happiness and appreciation for the joys of life... big and small. The small being, I was able to walk around the garden for three hours without too much twitching from my twitchy hip.
Yesterday, Saturday, I read alone most of the day. I took a warm bubble bath and read some more. The Son of Neptune, by Rick Riordon. I'm almost finished, then I'll give it back to Mark.
Gabe and Brendon spent the night... and now we are getting ready for church. I guess I'd better help...
