MAGNOLIA PARADISE


I've had a very laid back weekend and one of the highlights was a wander through Dunedin's Botanic Gardens with hubby.

Even a writer has to admit that some pictures paint a thousand words. So I'll let my camera take over the rest of this post.


















And of course it wasn't just the magnolias putting on a brilliant display.

    1. I must admit it's the first time I've managed to get to the Gardens at just the right time for the magnolias. Next will be the rhodies and azaleas.

    1. Yeah, we're pretty spoiled to have the Gardens so close - just a five minute drive.

    1. Glad you liked them, Melissa. There's nothing more pretty than a magnolia in full bloom.
