Awe...some Mondays - Magnolia Plantation

Magnolia Plantation - Charleston, South Carolina
Just outside of Charleston, South Carolina sits the main house of the Magnolia Plantation. Originally 2000 acres in size, 1500 acres were sold after the Civil War in order to maintain and rebuild the property. The remaining 500 acres is now home to some of the most beautiful gardens in the South, as well as restoration of  wetlands. If you're in the area, this needs to be on your must see list. The history is interesting and the gardens are beautiful.

 There are multiple angles and distances from which one can photograph this bridge on the property. It is a postcard setting.
 You can use the bridge as a soft-focus background for your own photo. Just ask one of the other visitors to snap your image.

 Live Oak trees and Spanish moss let you know that you are in the South. The back of Magnolia Plantation is just as beautiful as the front.

  3. We visited years ago before I was really interested in taking photos or blogging or anything like that. It is really a beautiful place to visit not just for the visual beauty but for the history as well.

    1. The history of this plantation is very interesting. The property has been in the same family for 14 generations.

  4. Hello from Idaho and stop in from Yogi and when I was younger I thought it would be cool to live in one of there big homes. Older I get simplier I need my life to be.
    If you have time stop by for a cup of coffee

  5. There are still some of those plantations here in south Louisiana, too. With the restored wetlands, this one looks especially tour-worthy.

    1. It is indeed tour worthy. There are still some slave cabins on the grounds and the stories behind them are spell binding.
