Me being a nerd and all, it wasn't nearly as... um...... interesting as I'm sure some spring breaks in my age group were But we went to Charleston, South Carolina for a week and had a blast!!! Besides the amazing food (baaaaaaarbecue) it was LOVELY to escape cold, dark, snowy western NY for a little while... things are GREEN down that way!!! Just thought I'd share some pictures that plant folks might appreciate, since they have such beautiful photo ops down there!
Tupelo Swamp at Audubon Swamp Garden, Magnolia Plantation. No CPs. le sad.
Ok, he's fauna, not flora.... still very cool Although I did think the alligators, however small, were a bit too close for comfort at Magnolia...
Camellia at Magnolia Plantation... they have TONS of them at the gardens and many were in bloom
Angel Oak, hands down the most awesome tree I have ever met. It's supposed to be 1400 years old, "the oldest living thing east of the Mississippi". See the speck? The speck is me. And yes, all of those branches (ALL of them) are the same tree.
