I visited Duke Gardens in June and found some new gardens that I hadn’t seen before: very beautiful woodland areas leading to a shady Asiatic arboretum, an all-white garden, and a kids garden with resource center. Some areas were still under construction but I had a lovely afternoon.

Sorry that the photos have lighting problems, I had very strong afternoon light to contend with. I did use Picasa to add effects that help minimize the problem of too much contrast.
