South Carolina Vacation: Brookgreen Gardens Third Visit, Part Two
We visited Brookgreen Gardens for the third time on Sunday, February 26. Our first stop was in the Rosen Galleries, in which is featured an exhibition of some of Auguste Rodin’s best-known sculptures. Leaving the Rosen Galleries, we meandered through the gardens admiring the outdoor sculptures, flowers, and flowering shrubs and trees.
I took the following pictures near the Welcome Plaza and Keepsakes Museum Shop.
Allow your eyes to follow the garden path, and you will see a glimpse of the next art piece that I photographed.
Moving away from the Welcome Center and the Keepsakes Museum Shop we arrived at the first two sculptures that I photographed.
From “Diana of the Chase” we entered Live Oak Allee.
Live Oak Allee ends near the sculpture of Dionysus.
To the left of “Dionysus” is the Old Kitchen, which offers sandwiches, wraps, quiche, salads, desserts, beverages, and light refreshments.
While meandering through Brookgreen Gardens we pulled out a map of the gardens several times. We wanted to see as much of the gardens as we could, without doing much backtracking. It was at the Old Kitchen that we realized we had missed a couple sculptures back towards the Welcome Center. So we backtracked a little bit.
This is a good place to end this blog post, right before we visit the largest sculpture at Brookgreen Gardens. I will wrap up our Brookgreen Gardens visit in my next blog post.
