Our Day Trip to Duke Farms

This past weekend I went out to a wonderful place called Duke Farms, with my daughters. I packed up a lunch, and headed off to Hillsborough, NJ where Duke Farms is located.

Duke Farms was owned by the Duke family, who at one point was the wealthiest family in America. I found it interesting to note that Doris Duke was an avid art collector, as well as an environmentalist.

Anyway, here’s a few snapshots:

This is what used to be a hay house. It is now home to a sculpture garden.

Of course, they have a field of sunflowers, which I could not resist taking some photos of.

Do you see that bee there? Dakota thought that was so cool. Nature is so inspiring to me. When my energy is depleted and I feel I’ve already given everything I’ve got, I simply go spend some time in nature, take some photos, and go home filled with a bit more energy and feeling much better.

The next time you feel like you’re feeling low on positive vibrations, try spending some time in nature. You’ll be surprised at how great you’ll feel!
