Star Magnolia Star Magnolia Tree Camellia Japonica Old oaks/pathway in Brookgreen Gardens
We had a lot of ice and lost some trees on 2/16/14 due to high winds. I wanted to see how badly Brookgreen was affected. They had some areas closed due to cleanup from fallen trees/limbs, amd they were still working on removing debris, but the old oaks have withstood worse weather, and I didn't see much damage. I went back to Brookgreen on 2/18/14 and took these photos:
1. Star Magnolia 2. Star Magnoliatree blooms in te winter. 3. Jonquil 4. Camellia Japonica 5. Old oak, apparently undamaged by the ice storm
