Magnolia Plantation House, Spring Views

There’s not much for non-green color going on in the front of the Magnolia Plantation House right now, except the Wisteria draping the trees to the left and a bit of Azalea peaking up on the right.

On the river side, Azaleas were putting on a good show.

Update 5: Long White Bridge, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

I ended my last Long White Bridge update with:

Foot traffic was still not allowed on the bridge. I expect the sides will have a railing along the top and there will be caps on the posts, both in black.

Thursday this week was a sunny day and I went back to check on progress. The holiday decorations have been removed, the caps are in place, no black painting has been done, and visitors are still blocked from crossing the bridge.

I pretty quickly got distracted by a Great Blue Heron posing on the new railing.

A few minutes later a Little Blue Heron decided to check out the new view, too.

Surprisingly the Little Blue flew even closer to the GBH.

Even more surprisingly the LBH  struck the same pose as the GBH, who never moved.

Update 4: Long White Bridge, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

I returned to the Long White Bridge twice the first week in January to find that at the end of December the lattice side work had been completed and the bridge decorated with pine rope garland.

Wintertime Spanish Moss when there is no other color to reflect in the water makes a harsh image. I’m hoping any vegetation damaged by the falling tree and repair work will rebound as we move into spring.

The Great Blue Heron took flight, getting awfully close to the bridge before he lifted up and over.
