Governor's Mansion Garden Tour

The Governor's Mansion, Raleigh, NC (Photo from Wikipedia website.)
On Saturday a tour of the gardens of the Executive Mansion was part of the Science Festival held in downtown Raleigh.  After the lecture on herbs at Logan's I dashed over to Blount Street and made a quick tour of the gardens.  Many of the plants were at their peak.  Let's have a peek.
Beautiful old oak tree.
Pretty in pink.
Bird feeders by Mary Jo Stephenson in the Victorian Garden.
The Rose Garden.

Artichokes in the Vegetable Garden.
