Esther and Jeff

After visiting Duke Gardens I took a trip over the July 4 holiday to see my family. I had a really nice visit.

Not only did I have a chance to get away from NC’s heat and humidity to see my family, I got a chance to see my sister-in-law’s gardens in their full summer splendor.

They were so gorgeous that I am devoting a blog entry to them right after my Duke Gardens blog entry. Esther’s gardens were just as pretty, just not as big or famous.

Above are my brother and sister-in-law. (And notice the subtle plug for Terre Hill Restaurant!)
