Its a lovely time downtown and in the garden !

Usually we have drinks or a bite to eat at The Borough on the corner of Dawson and Morgan Streets near the heart of Downtown Raleigh.

  1. The hawk nest is really cool. Do they attack any pedestrians?


  2. The lamb’s ears are great. I’ve never seen such a big border of them.
