Brookgreen Gardens

Last week I was on vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC. I took the opportunity one morning to visit the Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet. The place is a sculpture garden & wildlife preserve and it is beautiful beyond belief. The property consists of 9,100 acres and is built on four former rice plantations. I would compare it to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. But with a very southern feel and charm. One of their missions is to collect, conserve and exhibit figurative sculpture by American artists.

Burnside Plantation

Bethlehem, PA has a little gem known as the Burnside Plantation. It is a 6.5 acre plantation listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally purchased by James Burnside in 1748. He than sold 200 acres to a group of Moravians in 1751. In 1986 Lehigh County bought the plantation. Most people visit and photograph it in the warmer months. It was a treat to see it covered in snow.
