Magnificent Magnolias

Dear Readers, I’ve been missing in action for sometime, but for a very good reason.  We spent two glorious weeks in the Caribbean, a week in Antigua and a week in Montserrat.  I’ll no doubt be sharing some of the images and stories in the next few weeks.

For now, I wanted to take you on a stroll with me down Magnolia Walk at Goodstay Gardens.  It never fails to amaze me that Delaware, being such a small state is full of horticultural wonders.  Goodstay Gardens is definitely one of those wonders, a true gem in the city, I love to call it our very own secret garden.  We live just a stones throw away from this fascinating and charming garden.  Bert and I volunteer here and the rewards of working outdoors, hearing the birds chirp, being surrounded by flowers and nature is just indescribable.  There’s a short window when the magnolias come alive, and this happened last weekend.  My trusty camera and I took a walk.  Enjoy some of its beauty!

Some of the close ups.

Love the reflection in the fountain pool.

Next up, the peonies will be strutting their stuff soon.  Stay tuned 🙂

  1. Loretta, your images are stunning. I guess when I hear magnolias I think of the Southern US, but obviously, they grow north as well. I’m looking forward to your post on your recent voyage.
