a picnic in duke gardens

A few weekends ago, a few of my friends and I went on a picnic in the beautiful Sarah P. Duke Gardens.  It was beautiful when we set out and found our spot under a magnolia tree.  As the day went on, the sun stayed out but it started raining.  We found a bench sheltered by a big tree and waited it out until the rain let up.  We then made our way across the gardens to an open field where kids, adults and college students were playing games and hanging out.  When we crossed the path from the main gardens into the field, it stopped raining.  Separated by only a few yards, the rain that showered the gardens never touched the field.  It was like walking into another land (think Narnia or Platform 9 3/4 -crazy!).

I had a great time catching up with these two beauties and exploring the gardens a bit.  Duke Gardens are so vast and we only made it to a few sections this time around.  I guess that just means we will have to do it again :)

Get ready for a ton of pictures!
