If you’re like the rest of us, you’re trapped behind a computer screen all day, wondering if your breath smells bad and just how long your carpal tunnels will hold up.

It’s a shame really, because just beyond the window, spring is in the air and nature is sprouting in a beautiful and fervid way.

Short of quitting, though, you may have a tough time leaving work. So with you and your predicament in mind, Xpress offers this sights-and-sounds virtual tour of the Botanical Gardens at Asheville.

Located at 15 W.T. Weaver Boulevard at the corner of the UNCA campus, the gardens are home to approximately 700 species of native plants, most of them situated along trails that are easily walked — assuming you’re ever able to leave the office.

Until that happens, click here to view the gardens in spring.
