“The silver gardens of the south”

Brookgreen Gardens – neither words nor pictures do this place justice – truly a spiritual experience every time.  Thank you Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington for this wonderful gift you have left for all to enjoy.

  1. Great photos. We lived in Charleston for seven years and never went to Brookgreen Gardens. Our loss! Will get there on our next trip south. Thanks for the education. Went to Wikipedia to learn about Anna Hyatt Huntington. A superb artist/sculptor.
