The Magical Magnolia Plantation

It was my great joy to attend a wedding at this lovely setting over the weekend.

Magnolia Plantation has belonged to the Drayton family since 1676.

It is located near the city of Charleston, South Carolina along the Ashley River.

The house has a lovely wrap-around porch for entertaining and viewing the property.

The house walls are covered with a stucco-like composite called pebbledash.

This is a combination of phosphate, lime and river mud. It has a rough texture due to shells and pebbles in the mix.

The Bald Cypress trees hung with Spanish moss surround various sizes of ponds and seemed to make little dams with their knees.

Several lovely bridges allow you pause and peer into the waters.

There are many camellias and azaleas on the grounds.

I will share two unusual plants from Magnolia Plantation in my next post.

Stay tuned.
