I went to Middleton Place hoping for the iconic reflections in the Mill Pond. However, the wind was blowing, and not just a breeze that might have given the patient photographer a few moments of still water.
Middleton Place has a non-featured trio of goats in their Heritage Stable yard. They are in the back, away from the flashier Cashmere Goats that are penned next to the sheep. There may be goat antics that require this separation.
I’ve stopped by to see these three many times and a couple weeks ago for the first time the goats were in a sun patch, although didn’t line up for any kind of group photo. They’ve got some impressive horns and did show off their goatees.
I went to check on azalea reflections in the Mill Pond and found this instead. Azalea plants line the left bank and many of them sprouted new shoots that have grown taller than the blooms. We also had two nights of frost the previous week that killed any blooms that were exposed.
