What a great place to spend an afternoon! The nearby North Carolina Botanical Garden (NCBG) is a lovely public garden, a conservation garden full of native plants. Many wildflowers were blooming today throughout the habitat gardens. Especially beautiful were the paths lined with Eastern Blue Phlox and Golden Ragwort.
The restored cabin of playwright Paul Green and a storytelling area are features that add to the garden’s charm. From trilliums in the Mountain Habitat to the Christmas fern against a mossy rock and cedar knees rising out of water in the Coastal Plain and Sandhills Habitats, the garden was full of interesting vignettes.
