Spring Flowers at JC Raulston Arboretum, Raleigh, NC

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!

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
