Over the past few days hubby and I have been preparing for a filming event at Magnolia Plantation. I thought it would be fun to take my blog-blog sisterhood buddies along with us!
An old iron gate opens to welcome visitors...
while stone lions perch upon brick pillars guarding the grounds beyond.
A historic marker designates this nationally recognized landmark.
A canopy of oaks shades the lane.
Ancient oaks stand tall beside pastures of ponies.
A majestic oak.
A bridge in the distance invites one for a relaxing walk across the pond.
Just around the bend a beautiful mansion looms ahead past gardens of flowers.
The carriage house, an early 18th century structure, awaited our arrival.
The interior wood is original to this structure which now hosts events at the plantation. On this afternoon it was the place for us to prepare for filming.
A small cottage just beyond the carriage house.
A stroll along marshy waters helped to pass time.
Moss laden branches hang softly above the murky waters.
Bright pink petals float on the green algae surface.
Some now house equipment...
while others are open to give view to the past.
and fauna abound.
After our stroll hubby desides to rest.
