A Visit to Magnolia – Part Two

My favorite part of our trip to the Magnolia silos was the outside and gardens. I’ve been taking a Master Gardener class this fall at MSU and my mind has been in the dirt (so to speak). Most of my daydreaming has consisted of plants, vegetables and greenery, so when we ventured out to the Magnolia grounds, this is where I got super excited! Before we get there, let’s take a peek at the other fun, the bakery!

Needless to say, the outside patio is darling with string lights and a view of the silos. The inside is clean and simple and the menu is limited to a few cupcakes, cookies, and other treats.

We ordered cupcakes (despite the diet) and dined in the outdoor patio.

Everything else on the property is taken care of beautifully, and there are a variety of places to sit and picnic, or play and interact.

There also is a large stage at the center grassy area that looks perfect for outdoor concerts and fun. Notice the fun striped bean bags on the lawn.

There’s more building going on in the back, and there is a line of food trucks to buy food from too! This is a wonderful place set up for the community.

It was a great time of year for everything to be fully grown and to have some blooming color.

I seriously cannot wait to implement some of these ideas in my own garden!

Once you pass through the garden there is another building that houses the garden shop.

Some of the wall was covered with great peely chippy old fence board.

This is a fun display with these olive baskets. The mix of wood, metal, and greenery in the shop was really nice.

Back outside, all the plantings continue to inspire.

Overall it was a super fun trip, and our business that took us to Texas was successful. As stated, the gardens at Magnolia were my favorite part. It is always wonderful to be inspired by others, and what the Gaines have created from the silos in Waco is nothing short of amazing! I’m glad I was able to visit. What was your favorite part?

Love this life, Jill
