If you’re like me- it’s time to get ready for Thanksgiving! Last year, the cottage was graced with a Southern Magnolia Wreath- thought we’d share the beauty of it again this year, along with Magnolia’s distinctly southern personality! Enjoy….love y’all, Camellia

Camellia's Cottage


It’s a fact- the closer you live to a Southern Magnolia the better your life will be…Tall, stately and oh so beautiful, she wears flamboyant flowers and her signature citrus scent. Magnolia’s green satin leaves are lined with brown linen that sets off creamy white flowers, red berries, then rustic cone shaped seed pods. Magnolia does enjoy her seasonal wardrobe. A true Southern lady, Magnolia tends to prefer the lower and coastal landscape and seems particularly happy in a mixed crowd-

  •  Silly Longleaf and Loblolly Pines,
  • Moody Live Oaks with long gray beards
  •  She happily waves to Nutty Hickories, Walnuts and Pecans-
  • And don’t get me started on Shy Dogwoods, Sour Persimmons and Crabapples…
  • Not to mention the clinging Muscadines and those crazy Redbuds!

Magnolia Grandiflora may be her given name, but just call her ‘Mag-knowl-ya’. Like so many Southern Ladies she knows how to age gracefully– and stands peaceful and serene regardless of winds or high water; and like a true Southern Lady

      1. Oh, thank you! This year, it’s a departure from my normal one! I posted it on Instagram… dried hydrangeas, berries, roses and more snipped from our garden! But I must agree, the magnolia leaf wreath is still my favorite! xoxo
