The Last Few Days of Winter


The weekend provided us two gems: sunshine, and Dr. Gooch.  We ignored the chill (for it was still Februrary), and took the rascals to a favorite spot.  We explored new-to-us corners of the empty, wintery, Sara P Duke Gardens and found that spring wasn't as far off as we had thought.   We found 5 new bridges, a pond drained, a Magnolia-tree hideout, birds, a flowering apricot tree, bright green moss, camelia blossoms, and unlimited fresh air.

I love Duke Gardens! We too enjoyed some much needed sunshine but we celebrated at the playground. I'd take a garden over a playground.
