OOOO no, once I decided to lead you down the garden path I knew this would be a long post.
My first thought, when I saw that one of the photohunter words this week was Ooooo and that the other one was Path, was that it's not unusual for me to say Oooooo look at that when walking down paths.
The problem was what paths should I pick.
I thought about using trails I've hiked on in the mountains.
I thought about forest and park trails near where I live that I walk on frequently.
Then I thought I better limit it or I'd have tens of thousands of shots to choose from.
That's why I am only showing you garden paths in the triangle area of central NC where I live.
That's still not much of a limiting factor.
If this seems like a hodge podge its because these shots were taken during several different seasons and years.
The garden paths are in Duke Gardens and Grace Garden in Durham NC, the JC Raulston Arboretum at NCSU in Raleigh NC, and the NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill, NC.
Those three towns comprise the triangle area of NC.
Since the company I work for is in Durham, I live in Raleigh, and one of my doctors is in Chapel Hill, I have plenty of opportunities to slip off to the gardens in these towns.
There are also many other beautiful gardens in the triangle area in addition to these.
However, I don't want to lead you down too many garden paths or I might get lost.
There are so many different aspects of gardens that make me go Ooooooooooo.
Sometimes the bare beauty of a winter garden affects me as much as spring.
I like gardens that make me feel as if I'm in a forest but I also like Japanese Gardens with their stylized beauty.
Ooooo I guess I will leave you with one last path.
