When on vacation in North Carolina, we drove to Wilmington to sightsee. I wanted to visit Arlie Gardens which had been closed the last time we were in the area. I will tell you that I fell in love. These are more architectural than botanical gardens, lots of structures, statues in wonderful garden rooms. Above and to the right is the Minnie Evans Sculpture Garden, inspired by a painting of the artist.
The oaks were breathtaking.
The Pergola Garden, doesn't it look like a movie setting?

A hidden garden
I hope you enjoyed my tour of the Airlie Gardens and if you are ever in the area, don't hesitate and visit!
