A Walk Through The Gardens

Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke University are right around the corner but I tend to stay away because 1) I've shot there a gazillion times and 2) so has everyone else. That said, when I do go it's a pleasant reminder of the exceptional collection and variety of plants and flowers they have. It's the one place I can find stunning water lilies and the only place I know of around where there are Lotus blossoms. I missed the Lotus blooming peak but there were still a few to be found. You can wander around for hours in any season and still not see it all. Every excursion offers something new and an afternoon retreat that's really good for the soul.
