Hello and welcome!
It’s time to switch gears and get back to nature today. I have just a few pictures of the oodles I took at the last of the gardens we got to visit in May – the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC.
The quality of these isn’t great as I made them low res so the page will load quickly, but I think you will still enjoy them. If you missed the other posts, you can go to the home page and, in the right-hand column – under ‘categories’, click ‘garden.’
You can click on any picture to enlarge it.
Enjoy your tour!
^ Salvia ‘Cardona’ (They have GREAT signage at this arboretum! I didn’t catch them all, but will let you know the ones I did.)
^ Gerbera (Garvinea ‘Sweet Dreams’)
^ Dichelostemma multiflorum (wild hyacinth)
^ Iris ‘Tea Service’
^ Dianthus – hybrid Sweet William
^ Magnolia… The flower is as big as my head!
Hydrangeaceae Deutzia xhybrida “Tourbillon Rouge’
Dicentra “Amore Pink’ (bleeding heart)
^ Dichelostemma venustum… a cross between the Dichelostemma multiflorum (wild hyacinth), above, and the Dichelostemma ida-maia (‘firecracker flower’) you saw in my pictures from Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens (HERE).
^Lilium ‘Sunny Morning’
^ Kniphofia uvaria – Red Hot Poker/Torch Lily (a favorite of hummingbirds)
If you click on the next one to enlarge it, you might see who photo-bombed my picture in the upper left. : )
I meditate on all your activity;
I eagerly ponder over the work of your hands….
The works of Jehovah are great;
They are studied by all those finding pleasure in them.
His activity is glorious and splendid,
And his righteousness endures forever.
– Psalm 143:5 & 111:2,3
I hope you enjoyed your tour – feel free to stop by any time!
