Garden Walking - Magnolia Plantation

Magnolia Plantation, Charleston, S.C.
I took the day off since my folks are here from Canada. One of my volunteers gave me a pass to Drayton Hall so we headed out Hwy 61 to be greeting at the gate with the news that Drayton Hall was closed. That was a surprise but I am always happy to go back to Magnolia Plantation. It is one of my favorite places in the world.

The sun was out and the camellias are in their glory. What a beautiful day. I gave my Dad a break and we took the tram ride through the swamp. It was like riding through a nature documentary with all the birds and gators showing off for us. It is a good time of year to renew my annual membership with all the activity starting in the egret rookery. Action time!
