Shirley plantation


I hope everyone has a great week-end, as for me I am planning on picking blackberries with a friend and catch up on some reading.
Sort of a lazy few days.
I took the following pictures in the fall of the year at Shirley Plantation,    I thought the landscape was pretty and just wanted to share the photos.
Have a great week end.
