Today's Flowers: Grace Garden


I took these shots on Friday in Grace Garden which is located in downtown Durham, NC.

This memorial garden is part of Durham Central Park which is a pleasant green area in the middle of a mixture of businesses, residential housing, warehouses, city farmer's market, etc.

It's less than a block from the old Durham Bulls baseball park where they filmed the movie Bull Durham.

The Durham Bulls have a new athletic park but the old one is still used by the community. You can't see the ball park in these photos but it's just out of view from where I'm shooting.

These photos make me want to put my sneakers on and run south--and keep on until I get there! They are beautiful.

I'm glad the old stadium is still being used. Sometimes cities don't always make great decisions. The park is very nice.
