I love traveling to distant places to see beautiful gardens. But I’m lucky to have some pretty amazing gardens located right in my own backyard (so to speak). Depending on where you live, you may also have some lovely public gardens just waiting for you to visit.
I live less than an hour’s drive away from the North Carolina Botanical Garden located in Chapel Hill, NC. The NC Botanical Garden is a conservation garden operated by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I visited this garden in July 2017. A number of garden areas appeared distressed from the heat, but here are a few highlights.
Hope you can make some time this year to visit a few public gardens near you!
