Magnolia Plantation & Gardens

                                                                   

                                                When we went to Charleston a few weeks ago we went
                                                      to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens a couple of times. It is  
                                       a beautiful place to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed
                                  walking the trails bordered by camellias,azaleas,
                                    magnolias,redbuds rhodos etc . We enjoyed all the
               different birds and wildlife as well. 

                                 This was also the site of the wedding that I shared
recently.


                                   
                                                    We went early in the morning the
                                                    second time we were there and the
                                                    weather was lovely for taking pics.
                                                       Love the different bridges that are reflected
                                                       in the water.
                                                            There are also lots of beautiful statues.
                                                    The azaleas were blooming but not
                                                    quite at their peak yet.
                                                                     Romantic

                                                           Love the trees dripping with moss.

                                                                  The prayer garden
                                                            The camellias were still in bloom.

                                                                  So beautiful!

                                                                       These beautiful peacocks wandered
                                                                       freely around the gardens.

                                                          Azalea lined pathways

                                  If you are in the Charleston area I highly
                                            recommend a visit to this beautiful
                                            plantation especially in spring time.

                                       
                                           I hope you enjoyed my little tour around
                                           Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

                                                 Have a wonderful day!

                                                             Carolyn

So gorgeous! I have been to New Orleans a few times and reminds me of that - all that Spanish moss. Such uniquely beautiful vegetation in the bayou kinds of places. Romantic and truly beautiful!!

Thanks for sharing. xo

Absolutely gorgeous photos Carolyn! The reflections in the water are so beautiful. I'm sorry your lost your blog list! That would be awful and I don't have a clue to go about finding it. I hope you can!

I have been to Charleston several times and I do think it is one of the prettiest cities in the US. The gardens and the homes south of Broad are gorgeous. Thanks for taking me on a trip down memory lane.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Dear Carolyn, I have been to the Magnolia Plantation once, many years ago. We loved it, it was so beautiful. I had hoped to go back to Charleston this month, but due to an expected health issue had to cancel. I hope to get back there again.
Thanks for sharing!
