First Bloom – Triangle Gardens!

Untitled

After 7 weeks of hiding my potted sunflower plants from the deer each night I was finally rewarded with the first bloom today! The wet spring and mild summer has resulted in a vibrant landscape in the Triangle this season. If you would like to get out and see some of the area flora for yourself here my recommendations – all FREE:

  1. Sunflower field between mile 23 & 24 of the Neuse Greenway 
  2. Sarah P. Duke Gardens – Durham
  3. JC Raulston Arboretum – Raleigh 
  4. Raleigh Rose Garden

I can’t grow much in my yard because I don’t have a fence and my plants usually just end up as deer food. So I’m glad I have managed to grow this sunflower and claim a minor gardening victory! I’m also grateful for the public gardens we have access to here in the Triangle. No matter what you do this weekend I hope you are enjoying this great weather we are experiencing and spending as much time outside as possible. Happy exploring!

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    everything. Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

  2. Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a large
    amount of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my
    diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share
    my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
