I could get disowned for this next sentence. Coker Arboretum is better than Duke Gardens.
I'm sorry, it is. Even though it is located on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill, I have to give it some serious points. The landscaping, the flowers, the architecture, the general enjoyment. All better. Maybe I have just been going to Duke Gardens for too long, and have become bored. I don't know, I just enjoyed my visit to Coker Arboretum, this morning, more than I can say. The wisteria was intoxicating, the indigo was addictive, and the shade was abounding.
