I work at the Elizabethan Gardens and what a joy to watch spring just burst open! And what a blessing to be able to take a special walk each day and see the beauty of God's awesome hand. You must stop, take a deep breath and exhale about every 30 feet or so. I feel like there are few words to describe what my eyes can see...I call it my "WORDLESS WALK"!
Come for a visit if you are in the neighborhood, it is worth the ride if you are traveling from afar. We are open 7 days a week 9am to 5pm (6pm starting 4/1/12).
We have new walkways and have opened up the water viewing area. Cool breezes and lush green grass make the Overlook Terrance the place to have a picnic lunch.
Miss Virginia Dare is blooming with her azaleas.
She is a beauty in her own category! I love to capture the different lighting that reflects on her stunning pose. She is captivating and a mystery to us all but you is forever in our hearts.
Wisteria (invasive species) is in full bloom everywhere and there appeared a small patch that escaped into the gardens! You could smell the aromatic essence that made you want to follow the scent to eternity.
The purple and lavender colors and hues were eye candy to my lens. Just wish that you could capture the smells to share :)
The crepe myrtles have been pollarded and are starting to show the first signs of new growth this week. Before we know it, the pink flowers will be in full bloom.
Hope to see you in the gardens real soon!
