One of the downsides of working a regular job is you are fighting the crowds to see popular places. Magnolia Gardens is a place we have been wanting to see and since we were here during peak bloom this was the time to see it. Unfortunately tons of other people felt the same way, so we decided to go at 9am on Easter Sunday. This turned out to be a great decision as it was very nice during the morning hours and around noon when we left the line was crazy long to get in. If you do decided to go I recommend early morning mid-week if you can choose that time, if not get there as early as you can. It’s worth it.
All of the flowers were really pretty and the house, but those weren’t what was truly special. There were several bridges with ponds and they were absolutely gorgeous. Spread throughout the area, I have never seen that many beautiful venues for pictures in so many places. More than worth the $20 entrance fee.
As we were heading out, we noticed that their greenhouse was open and both of us gravitated to a freestanding bird bath. WE have been looking for a lightweight, collapsible birdbath for awhile and we found one!! The legs collapse and the dish was absolutely beautiful. Lee bought it for me on the spot. Perfect way to end the day.

What a beautiful place! Love the birdbath!
Mid-April in Charleston is beautiful😍 Your photos of Magnolia Gardens are AMAZING!!!
Tracy, I found your book on Amazon and enjoyed it very much. What really caught me was that you camped in Ebenezer Park, in Rock Hill. I live across the lake and can see the park. I have kayaked over to Goat Island several times. They just did a major renovation of the park and I need to go check it out. I have lived in the Carolina’s, Georgia and Florida for my entire life and was very familiar with many of your stops. Your lifestyle is a dream of mine but not a reality at this point. However, I bought a used SylvanSport Go (Google it because it is impossible to explain!) last summer and have been using it to explore the Carolinas and Georgia. I use it haul my ebike to explore future when I get there. If you are ever in my neck of the woods, I would love to sit around your campfire! I consider anything within a 3 hour drive close. I am now reading your blog from the beginning and I am up to August 2015.
Thanks so much !
