Photo Challenge – Ambience

This week we are asked to show ambience – a positive atmosphere that lifts a person’s mood.

It’s the middle of January.  Earlier this week, temperatures here in South Carolina were below freezing and there was a small chance we might get snow.  Today it’s 70 degrees outside.

 So a trip to Brookgreen Gardens was on today’s “to do” list.  Strolling along the paths and under magnificent oak trees dripping with Spanish moss creates such a calm and peaceful atmosphere.  Time instantly slowed for me today and all problems and worries were forgotten.
