Sarah Duke Gardens - Durham

This week I visited Sarah Duke Gardens in Durham located near Duke.  It was a beautiful day for a visit.  The bulbs were all in bloom and the color was fascinating!

The gardens are located on a 55 acre public garden including 5 miles of walking paths, ampitheater and koi pond.

It is a wonderful place to visit and spend some quality time and enjoy the outdoors and beautiful nature!  The gardens would also be a perfect spot for weddings, too!

Here are some photos that I took while visiting.
