Spring is on the way!

Photos and text by Lauren Sims

Well, it seems the groundhog was right this year. My recent stroll through Duke Gardens tells me that spring is on our doorstep.

Buds are giving way to beautiful and fragrant blooms throughout the Culberson Asiatic Arboretum.

The pinks and whites are lovely right now.

The oversized blooms of the Yulan magnolia are definitely a must-see.

More pinks popping...

What better complement to a Carolina blue sky?

And even on the cloudiest spring day, the daffodils throughout the Gardens are enough to make you smile.
This time of year, Duke Gardens seems to change and grow every day--new shapes, new colors, new scents. Come on out and see for yourself, and be sure to bring your camera to capture all the beauty!

  1. I totally agree with spring coming early this year. I was out in the gardens last Friday and if the early blooms are any indication, the main event is going to be spectacular...
