Maclay State Gardens
The Maclay State Gardens, located in Tallahassee, Florida, were designed in 1923 by Alfred Maclay. It was his intention to have booms in winter and early spring, when he and his wife were in residence at their home on the property. While there are activities year round, the best time to see the gardens is from January to April, with the peak time being early March. Visitors will see oriental magnolias, a walled garden, a Secret Garden, an Azalea Hillside, and a reflection pool. There are picnic benches on the grounds, and other activities such as canoeing, fishing, and hiking. You can easily spend a full day there.
Before I go, I have to special things for you. On this blog, I don't post personal things about myself, so readers don't really get to know me that well. Here's something you might enjoy, though - my first skydive. You can find the link here. (It's unedited. If you want to save time, the jump begins at the 3:13 point.)
Second, to thank you for following me, I'm giving free downloads of my book, Ten Zany Birds. You can go to Smashwords and enter code, AF29X (expires 9-9-15).

Now that sounds like a great park.ReplyDelete
First skydive - does that mean you will go again?
I'd go if someone else wanted to do it. I don't think I will make the two hour drive and pay the money to do it again by myself.Delete
The pictures look similar to a place I used to visit years ago that I liked. My place I'm sure was much smaller though.ReplyDelete
I'm sure your place was quite lovely.Delete
that place looks lovely and I love added house tours. Congrats on sky dive.......not on my bucket list, but I'm excited for those who choose to do it. Have a great weekReplyDelete
