Picture of the Week: Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham

Duke Garden

Tulips at Duke Gardens in Durham

This past weekend my wife and I made the short trip to Durham to explore the Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Saturday. We got caught in a brief sun shower while browsing the vast garden paths that wander through 55 acres, but it was well worth it to catch the flowers in full bloom on such  a mild day. I took the picture above while exploring the colorful tulips growing on the historic terraces by the fish pool. This is easily one of the most beautiful sections of the garden and a popular spot for photographs. The gardens are open daily from 8am until dusk. Admission is free but you do need to pay for parking ($2 per hour). For more information visit https://gardens.duke.edu.
