Fancy Nest Topper

It was the shape of the tree that caught my eye, reminding me of a carved finial. The Osprey nest that looks like a straw hat was secondary. It was early and not much light, but there is an Osprey in the nest, the white on its head visible close to the tree trunk.

Musical Cherubs

A troupe of five cherubs are nestled in one of the garden paths at Middleton Place.

You first see it down a straight shrub-lined path, which draws you in.

Last week when I was there some late Camellias were in bloom.

A closer look of the Cherubs; it looks like the statue has recently been cleaned, which rather highlights their imperfections.

Years ago Ted called this statue “Freaky Babies” so of course that is what I think every time I pass it. He a nice B&W version from a visit in February which in a post he aptly named  Freaky Babies.
