A Garden Walk

Enjoy a Spring walk today.  The wonderful weather we’ve been having lures us outside to explore and enjoy our landscapes.
You might want to consider a visit to a public garden for inspiration or
relaxation.  Try packing a picnic and don’t forget your camera.

Here in North Carolina, the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area has many wonderful gardens to tour.  Try the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh.  How about the Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham?

In Chapel Hill, the  NC Botanical Garden is another great choice.

In the Charlotte area, consider a trip to the
Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden

Heading up to D.C. soon?   Stop by the  US National Arboretum right in the capital city.  

Or check out the  Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden near Richmond, Virginia.

Travelling somewhere else in the country?  Check out this website to
