JC Raulston Arboretum

A couple of weekends ago, I spent the afternoon strolling through the gardens at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, North Carolina.

And it was heavenly.

Because the Arboretum is a living laboratory for NC State University, the over 5,000 plants are carefully grown and evaluated in order to be improved upon.

But I’m plenty pleased with how they look now! :)
