With colorful flowers and warmer weather, spring has finally arrived at Duke! Students are enjoying studying outdoors and exploring nature after the cold winter months. The gardens are especially popular at this time of year, with students and Durham residents alike. Though spring also brings allergies and the stress of approaching final exams, it offers a special chance to enjoy the natural environment.

Our photographer Sujal Manohar ventured out to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens to explore the seasonal scenery.
