My dear friend Marlana Semenza, a talented photographer and stylist in North Carolina, is always searching for new inspiration. She found a treasure trove at her most recent discovery, the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.

This historic public treasure, located on the West Campus of Duke University in Durham, spans 55 acres and is divided into four distinct areas; the Historic Core and Terraces, the H.L Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, the William Louis Culberson Asiatic Arboretum and the Doris Duke Center Gardens (including the Page-Rollins White Garden). Come prepared wearing your most comfy pair of walking shoes, because with more than five miles of walkways and paths to roam, with gorgeous vistas everywhere, it’s an amazingly beautiful place to explore.

If you’re looking for gardening inspiration, or would like more info about the gardens, visit Sarah P. Duke Gardens.

Thanks Marlana! I’m heading out to my gardens…

Love, Nora

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting artikcle like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will
    be much more useful than ever before.
