Maclay Gardens, Tallahasseee

A few Spring Flowers from Maclay Gardens in Tallahassee, Florida.
Today is the most beautiful day here.
More than one hundred years ago this land was a working plantation.
Alfred Maclay, a wealthy New York financier, bought the site in 1923 for a winter home and began planting his gardens.
Set among huge live oaks and towering pines, the garden paths
are lined with an outstanding collection of Camellias, Azaleas, Oriental Magnolias and other ornamentals.
Over 1000 acres of park land surrounding the Gardens offer recreational sites for swimming, boating, fishing and family
Miles of forest trails for hiking, jogging, bicycling and horse back riding travel around pristine Lake Overstreet, Gum Pond,
and deep wooded ravines.
If you are anywhere near this area it is a wonderful place to spend some time and enjoy all this natural beauty.
It is lovely!

Smiles and Blessings,
