Field Trip: Magnolia Plantation

There is something soothing about the smell of fresh flowers filling the Springtime air!  Even better is when these same flowers happen to be located on a historical landmark!  Our family got the the pleasure of going to Magnolia Plantation on a day that was heavily discounted for residents of South Carolina!  Wooohoooo!  Otherwise, our large family probably wouldn't have ever made it there.   The gardens and petting zoo area made it well worth the trip, though I must admit, without the discount, we probably won't be going again.  Numerous flowers were in full bloom.

The petting area had deer, pigs, chickens, other birds, goats, rabbits, and a small reptile house.

Along the many trails, we got to see some reptiles sunning themselves to warm up in the unusually cooler temperatures for the area.

This little fellow was maybe 5 feet from us on the other side of the grass.  Glad he stayed over there!

All in all, it was an enjoyable outing for our family and a great chance to spend the day together!
