Best place to stop and smell the flowers in Durham 

Sarah P. Duke Gardens

420 Anderson Street, Durham

(919) 684-3698

It's a full-blown North Carolina spring. Roadside jungles are spilling out of the medians. Blossoms are proliferating with astonishing speed. The sun burns away a rainy morning, only to summon an evening hailstorm. In the lush intensity of new plant life, spring feels coiled and ready to burst. If you haven't been following this unfolding botanical drama, consider a walk through Duke Gardens. The terraced beds leading to the koi pond display the range of flora blooming on any given day. Follow winding footpaths away from the main attraction to discover your own shaded enclaves, frog ponds, moss gardens, and bamboo forests, or the Japanese teahouse nestled by the Sho Unkei Garden.
