I made a quick visit to The JC Raulston Arboretum over by NC State yesterday. This is a fun free thing to do in the spring. Many of the plants are just waking up from the winter so I plan to go back in a few weeks when more plants are in full bloom. I don't want to spoil a visit for anyone so here is just a sneak peak of the arbotetum using some quick snapshots I took yesterday. BTW, if you want to make an afternoon of it and you are a fan of Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisine, I suggest you stop by the Neomonde Bakery and Cafe after your visit to the Arboretum (Neomonde is just down the street from the garden).

sportydd, I think early May would be a great time to visit the arboretum. Anytime is a good time, I think, but the perennial beds are waking up and should be looking well.

NRG, thanks again for the great photos! I took the fam there this morning for a walkabout.
