Saturday I drove up to Charleston SC to tour Magnolia Plantation Gardens.
Just a few shots of a southern spring, especially for you folks up north who might be shoveling some of that disgusting white stuff! So sorry.

Wonderful photos Penny... I spent a day at Callaway Gardens and a day in the Piedmont Park/Buckhead area in Atlanta this past weekend for a similarly southern spring weekend. Can't beat it.

mmmm, charleston...one of my favorite places.

I fell in love with it last summer when I went. We only spent one night there, so I didnt get to make it to that particular place, but its truly beautiful.

Your shots are inspiring me to take vacation that I dont have the time or money for! haha

Summerwine, I'm glad you like the shady path, I was thinking I needed to tweak the exposure a bit? It looks dark to me.
The statue is a replica of the Bird Girl Statue that appeared on the cover of Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil. I've never seen the original, she sits in a museum now, due to the volume of visitors tramping thru the graveyard looking for her! I'd rather see one I'm a garden, instead of one in a stuffy museum.

and i was gonna ask if you could get a photo of that midnight bird girl, o dwell (i'd rather see her in a garden too)

if you can lighten the shadows in a photoedit program without overexposing the brighter areas, i say go ahead, otherwise i wouldn't change a thing because what caught my eye about this one was the perspective of the path, and of looking up thru the distant branches to that wonderful, bright chartreuse

lianne :o)

very nice pic, if a little color correction is done on the pics, it will look even better
