JC Raulston Aboretum Poinsettia Show

Each Christmas season poinsettia breeders have a chance to show off their work with poinsettias!

Haywood Hall Christmas Open House

Haywood Hall is the only original Raleigh House on its original plot. I love the symmetry of the house.

The Boylan neighborhood ArtWalk

The Boylan neighborhood was created in 1907 when the Boylan family sold the family farm to land developer. The original house, Mumford Hall, sits on its original location. The first weekend of December the homeowners open their porches to artist.

The neighborhood is close to downtown Raleigh.

A great event to cap off a busy day!

Of course, I made homemade chicken salad sandwiches on English muffins to keep our energy up on a chilly day walking around the neighborhood!
