Edisto Memorial Gardens

Back in March Donna and I spent an afternoon at one of our favorite nearby places, Edisto Memorial Gardens in Orangeburg. It's a free park with lots of walking paths; a pond with fish, ducks, and geese; sculptures; many varieties of plants and trees; and quite an extensive rose garden. Always a nice place to take a stroll and spend a leisurely hour or two with a good book.

It was too early for the roses to be in bloom, but plenty of other vegetation was coming to life.

The Edisto River (the longest blackwater river in North America, I recently learned) flows through the park.
