Are you tired of all of my spring pictures? I hope not because there are more coming. Today I just wanted to share a few pictures from our trip to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, NC. Located on the Duke University campus this has been a destination I have wanted to visit for years and finally we were able to make it during a spring time visit to Aaron and Erin. It was lovely. Even though not everything is blooming, it is a space that is great to visit anytime of the year.
The gardens are well marked and there are many places to just sit and enjoy the surrounding beauty. The day we were there it was definitely being used for walking and picnics and had a lot of activity.
I love the mission that the gardens have. It’s absolutely perfect.

Absolutely beautiful, we are moving toward spring, but we might get snow next week, so progress here is slow.
Thanks for sharing this – so lovely and I like the core values. Maybe we can stop at Duke on our way to Florida some time. I’m a bit surprised that you have jackets on- hope it’s warming up for you!
Beautiful. I don’t remember seeing this when we toured Duke a few years ago but then I was just overwhelmed with how cool the campus was. 🌷
Never tired of spring photos, especially because spring is FINALLY arriving in my neck of the woods.
Your spring pictures warms my heart. Showing so much of God’s beauty. Keeping them coming.
Gorgeous! I will never get tired of your Spring pictures. Keep them coming.
I bet you were thrilled to find that RED bridge. Love the pic of you and Chris. And, of course, I love all these flowers.
Never too much Spring to see here in NE Ohio !
