"There is a small sign in the yard of a modest home on one of Chapel Hill’s loveliest streets. It says simply, The Garden Is Open.
Beginning in the early spring, people from all over town find an excuse to drive down Gimghoul Road. Hundreds of walkers and joggers from the nearby campus pass by. When the sign is out, many will make at least a short stop to savor the color or the scents of the changing displays of flowers and plants that fill the garden."
