It was a hot humid Carolina day so we went over early! The house was built by a former Governor of the state of S.C. prior to the civil war.
The trees around the house are really beautiful. Lots of large oaks and magnolia trees which were in blossom. These flowers are around 10 inches across!
Lots of patterns in the brickwork
and tiles (Minton imported from England!) that made me think of quilts.
I can't believe it took me so long to visit this state park! It is only 20 minutes from my house. When I lived overseas I made a point of going to at least one historical site a month.
me under one of the large trees!I think I need to try doing that in my own area too!
