My Day at Magnolia Plantation

This past Friday was the annual National Public Gardens Day, and my pastor’s wife and I went out to Charleston’s Magnolia Plantation & Gardens for the afternoon. It was a hot day, and the azaleas the gardens are best known for were well past their flowering; but we still found beauty everywhere we walked. I took quite a few pictures, including the one above of what is probably the most photographed garden bridge, especially when surrounded by blooming azaleas. It’s still gorgeous even without the flowers. Of all the pictures I took, I entered five of them in the National Public Gardens Day photo contest. (Deadline to enter is May 15, so don’t forget to upload your pictures.) Although I won’t tell you which pictures I entered, you can take a look at Magnolia Plantation through my eyes!
