Cold Weather Color: January 9th at SDG

Southern Living has recently named Durham's Sarah P. Duke Gardens as one of the top ten public gardens in the Southeast. I spent my lunch break there on Friday exploring what looked good this time of the year. The answer was plenty. With our last projected freeze a good three months away, you may think it would be a dreary hike in spots. But I found several reasons to fumble for the digital camera. Here are some pictures.
