We had a very hot summer here in NC, but we finally had a cool day in August 2015 and I was able to spend time at Duke Gardens. The garden isn’t huge but it is lovely. Of course its prime season is springtime, however August has its own charms.

The day was cloudy but the threatening rain waited until late in the day. I had a great time snapping photos.

The photos were difficult to enhance because they were dark due to the cloudy day. It was still so much fun to work on the photos from start to finish that I had to post them:
