I devoted most of my free time during July to photographing wildlife around my home in Laurens County.
I am working on a new book of photographs and information about the wildlife found in the Piedmont of
South Carolina. It is my impression that most of the people living in the Piedmont and other regions
of South Carolina do not know of the great variety of flora and fauna that can be found all about them.
We travel to the mountains and coast to see wildlife, never recognizing that the Piedmont offers equal
beauty and variety.
My wife and I picked Blackberries in the riverbottom and made a cobbler on July 4th.
The following weekend, our three grandchildren stayed with us. Win took the three of them swimming
in the river. It was a grand summer activity. Wild Turkeys visited our yard most every day (below).
