    Magnolia Plaza was slow to start this year thanks to the cool weather, but the wait was worth it. Today the trees burst into bloom filling the area near the Visitor Center with sweet scents and a gorgeous array of colorful blossoms. There are 72 trees highlighting 17 different varieties of magnolias on display. To learn more about the collection, visit Magnolia Plaza.

    Ms. Bullene certainly takes some spectacular photographs! (I suppose the setting doesn’t hurt either.)

    “Sweet scents” doesn’t begin to describe it.  Can you imagine?!?!?

    Love going to NYC annually to enjoy the beautiful Japanese cherry blossoms.  Every year, the view is more beautiful.  We love hanami and the sakura.
