A riot of color

Magnolia Plantation & Garden, Charleston, S.C.
I finally made it out to Magnolia Plantation & Gardens yesterday so I will be sharing a few more blossoms pictures. I felt like I was walking in heaven. It is still glorious and well worth a visit. I renewed my annual pass.
Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia Plantation has survived the centuries and witnessed the history of our nation unfold before it from the American Revolution through the Civil War and beyond. It is the oldest public tourist site in the Lowcountry, and the oldest public gardens in America, opening its doors to visitors in 1870 to view the thousands of beautiful flowers and plants in its famous gardens.
