My Favorite Outdoor Shots For Wednesday! :)

A "Shout" out to Susan for hosting Outdoor Wednesday on this lovely sunny GA day! Please be sure to drop by her place to see all the other Outdoor Wednesday shares!

My first favorite Outdoor pic is this shot of Middleton, SC - a plantation near Charleston. We had the best time here about three years ago and we are revisiting on August 15! I can't wait! The restaurant on the plantation makes THE BEST "White She Crab Soup".
Another favorite pic is the Pineapple Fountain that I snapped in Charleston... Pineapples are a symbol of "Welcome" and I just adored this one...it's located by the harbor.
A snap of my Lantana when I lived in Charlotte, NC - this butterfly took up residence~
My totally favorite outdoor pic of my great nephews enjoying ice cream at their cousins new Ice Cream Shop...
My pics at Biltmore Estate Gardens
More great nieces and nephews...this time they are the flower girl and the ring bearer...and the ring bearer, Eaven, is blowing his bubbles in the flower girl, Carly's, hair. Isn't that just like a little boy? :)
Have missed visiting you all this summer......Life has been like a box of chocolates....and I've been picking quite a few interesting ones this summer! :)

Hugs!

Beautiful pics! We love the Biltmore Gardens and have visited them three different times. In fact, we are heading that direction next week and I may convince my husband to make another stop.

Have a wonderful Wednesay.

Ohmygoodness, that fountain is something else, sugar, just gorgeous. When we lived in Hawaii we went to the Dole factory and their drinking fountains had pineapple juice coming out of them. We loved it and to this day my favorite juice is pineapple....
