Magnificent Magnolias

spring '13 223Not many words are needed to accompany the magic that is beginning to happen at Mission Oaks Gardens in Zanesville, Ohio. Almost all of the plants in these 5+ acre gardens have been sought out for planting by Albert Hendley over the past 25 years. Please visit the Mission Oaks Gardens Website to learn more about these Muskingum Valley Park District Gardens.

  1. The Magnolias are blooming here too, such gorgeous shrubs. My sister has the yellow one in her garden, probably my favorite:)
