Visiting the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC - Part 1

When we were in Raleigh a couple of weeks ago I had wanted to visit the JC Raulston Arboretum, but the weather was supposed to be rainy and stormy so I didn't think we would be able to go.

But on our last day there the rain let up for long enough we thought we would stop by. It was still overcast and very humid, but as long as there was no rain we were okay! 

Unfortunately since I wasn't expecting to visit the arboretum I didn't bring my camera, so all of my pictures were taken with my phone. I was pretty disappointed I didn't have my camera with me because the arboretum was so pretty!
I took quite a few pictures so I decided to break them up into two posts so it wasn't so much to look at. Be sure to check back on Wednesday for the rest of my pictures!


  1. UGH Isn't not having your DSLR the worst once you end up in a place with pretty flowers? That's the story of my life, since I don't bring my DSLR around with me for no reason. These flowers are gorgeous, and the whole arboretum, especially that lily pond, looks so pretty and peaceful. I was already thinking of going to an arboretum near me for my bday this year, and your post might have just pushed me over the edge! :)

  2. It is! On one hand, I didn't want to lug it around all weekend and not need it, but then we ended up at the garden and I just really wished I had it! Haha. And you should definitely go to the arboretum for your birthday! There's nothing like a beautiful garden and flowers to make you happy!
