Beautiful Spanish Moss In Airlie Gardens

When we went to Wilmington, North Carolina a few weekends ago for the azalea festival, we were only able to stop at only one of the gardens, Airlie. I can’t imagine any of the other gardens in town being better than this one, it was amazing. To read more about the history of Arlie gardens visit this link. I have compiled a list of my top 10 favorite Spanish moss filled shots for this post, and will share later in the week some more floral pictures. Pictured above is the The Airlie Oak, which is an amazing 466 years old in 2011.

Here is a second shot of that amazing old oak. On this trip, I used my 50mm, and shot in manual mode the whole time. This was the first time I only used manual on vacation photos, it was a little intimidating at first, and I think I need a little more practice, but very fun.

Here are some more of my favorite pics from around the gardens. We wondered around for about 2 hours, enjoying the sounds from the breeze in the Spanish moss, and the gorgeous blooming the tulips, camellias, dogwoods and azaleas.

I love the reflection in the water in this shot, it is one of my favorites from that day.

“Hello Mr. Goose, don’t worry I won’t let my little boy chase you.”

More floral photos coming soon!

    I love Spanish Moss. When I lived in Savannah, it was one of the things I enjoyed seeing when driving around town : )
