Summer Lights at Brookgreen Garden, Murrells Inlet, SC

Saturday night Megan, Jenny, Owen and I went to Brookgreen Garden for the Summer Lights display. As always, it was a fabulous time had by all! There is always so many things to see here no matter how many times you visit this garden. I have been there quite a few times and I haven't even seen everything yet. Here are some photos from that night for you to enjoy:
These were all empty soda bottles with lights in them.  They had 3 or 4 groupings of these at the entrance.  So pretty!!
This horse sculpture was at the beginning of one of the gardens.  Reminds me of the last horse I owned.
All the sculptures at Brookgreen are just wonderful!!
There are 2 peacock statues at the beginning of the main walkway at Brookgreen, just beautiful!

This fountain is pretty during the day and as it starts to get dark.

Diana, the Huntress

This statue was created by the same sculpture who created the Rockefeller Center gold angels statues.  Amazing work!

These lights are all wine bottles turned upside down with lights in them.  It was so pretty as it started to get dark.

These Chinese Lanterns were wonderful.  There were paths just lined with these.  So many colors.

This is a statue of a little girl playing a flute while sitting on a flower.  The Chinese lanterns and other lights were all around her.

Owen specifically wanted to see this statue again.  It is of Ben Franklin as a young man.  He told me there are very few statues of Ben Franklin when he was young.  He loves Ben Franklin almost as much as Abraham Lincoln. :)

These were all glass orbs and hand blown glass pieces.  It was quite bright so that is why the photo isn't so detailed.

Down one of the paths they hung hundreds of Chinese Lanterns in the trees, all different colors.  So beautiful!!

This was such a magical night.  I especially love to see things like this through Owen's eyes.  Children have such a way with looking at things maybe differently than an adult would.  If you are ever near this garden, I would highly recommend stopping by.  There is also some animals there for children and adults to go see.  They also have a butterfly house but due to COVID I don't think they have opened this yet.  Just a wonderful experience!


  1. I have friends in NC that are going there this December. Looks like a great place!

  2. Wow it's beautiful at night! I've never been there but it's been on the 'bucket list' for years! Some day hopefully. Glad you had fun with the family.
    Happy weekend - yes, it's almost here again, how time flies.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
