For a second weekend in a row, us Southerners were blessed with a weekend of absolutely glorious weather. (Even warmer this weekend - upper 70's!) Mr. YnB and I decided to check out the Clemson University Botanical Gardens. Even though not much is in bloom right now, it was still a lovely walk (we were unable to see everything even though we spent two hours there. And, this weekend, no threat of bear....just squirrels, various birds, bumble bees, ladybugs and geese were spied.)

Not sure what this unusual pink perennial plant is. Anyone know?
Not sure what this is either, except that it caught my eye from several yards away. (Approx. 8-10 in.)

A small waterfall located in a shade garden.
Pennies from heaven?
