Spring at Duke


Spring at Duke

A scene from Duke Gardens and their terraces. Each of the Italianate terraces are filled with seasonal flowers. This weekend, tulips of all colors -- from purple and magenta and red to white, peach and yellow --- were showcased. Crab apples, dogwoods, azaleas all in bloom ... set against the ever-present pine green .... a wonderful place to visit! Some day OUR Arboretum will look simliar---- I pray ...

The temps have plunged to freezing for the next two days - all of us have our fingers crossed for the strawberries and peaches in full bloom ....

Stay warm!

I hope your part of Italy is safe. I thought of you when I heard about the earthquake.
