Art in the Garden

Best in Show award
We live less than a mile from the North Carolina Botanical Garden. It's free to visit!   I used to take the kids there on walks, and now I take Alana.  This garden is all about native plants of NC from the mountain areas to the sandhills.  It's cool to watch the changing seasons through the plants and foliage there.  My kids have also liked looking for the creatures---tadpoles, turtles, frogs, snakes. The garden bosses do keep the deer out with a big fence for obvious reasons. 

Every year, they have a sculpture exhibit--pieces are displayed throughout, so I took a stroll down there today, and snapped a few pictures.  I think I'll go again tomorrow! I missed some.
no sculptures here, but really pretty with the flowers in bloom

This artist is a retired engineer--very talented

No sculpture, but I thought these pitcher plants with the flowers were lovely.


Its hard to see, but there is a metallic web.

One of my favorites

Former Ephesus parent made this.
