|Brookgreen Gardens - Limerick by Dixon Lanier Merritt|

One of the best things about living in the south now is being able to visit the fabulous Brookgreen Gardens. It's an awesome garden that is a National Historic Landmark filled with amazing sculptures and located in Murrels Inlet, South Carolina. We became members not too long after moving to NC because we knew we would be visiting often and would want to bring visitor's to see it as well. It's a drive that takes under 2 hours so it's a good day trip. I laugh when I think about this now because hardly ever took a day trip that long when living in CT and now it's not a big deal. :-)
Looking for a photo for today's Wordless (wordy today...) Wednesday post, I ran across this one that I had taken on one of our trips. Pelican's are one of my favorite birds and this is just an example of one of the many interesting things to see in the gardens. I'll post some more photos here and there as we make more trips to the area.
This is the poem / limerick written by Dixon Lanier Merritt:
A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the helican.
Hmmm, I'm thinking I'll take the Ts for a little car ride to see the water and the big birds. Then again, schmaybe not... lol
