Plantation Visit

I did not have much of a thing with mosquitoes. That is until we visited a famous plantation home on the Cape Fear river near Wilmington, North Carolina one summer. We were especially excited to view Orton Plantation's extensive flower gardens. But, soon as we all climbed out of the car. we were attacked by black clouds of the insects even though we had on repellent. We ran back to the car with my young nephew crying and screaming, "We're not going to ever come back here, are we?" So ended that memorable trip covered with hundreds of itchy bites. river still thousands of lotus blossoms look up at the sun Published - Cattails - Spring- 2016
