A lot of vegetation has been removed from the pond in front of the Long White Bridge at Magnolia Plantation over the last couple of years. Some was due to storm damage and some seems more like over zealous pruning. Previous years there would always be something flowering… Azalea, Magnolia, Calla Lily, Hibiscus…throughout the summer and into fall. This year has been mostly green whenever I’ve been.
This view is from behind the bridge when a late blooming Azalea added some color in a tangle of Star Hibiscus leaves.
