Weekend Snapshot: Number 4

Below is a picture I took of the Paul Green cabin this week.

The Paul Green Cabin, was moved to the North Carolina Botanical Garden in 1991 and restored. In this cabin, playwright Paul Green did much of his research and writing on uses of native herbs. Green's plays often incorporated the botanical knowledge and herbal folk wisdom of North Carolina's native peoples and settlers.


If you click on the photograph for an enlargement, you may notice some art around and on the cabin. I will write about and post pictures I took of the Sculpture in the Garden show soon. I mention it here because I think some of the art which is visible in this photograph is temporary and is part of that show which runs from mid September to mid November each year. All of the art is by NC artists but it runs the gamut from folk art, classical style, modern and everything in between.

If you are interested in joining or visiting other participant sites please go to weekend snapshot . Some like me are early and then there are various time zones represented but Monday is the post day.

Yeah Monday is the post day, maybe next time I wouldn't be wanting to post that early for some WS members will enjoy visiting member's entries randomly that day, and for me not to worry because I couldn't post a new entry lol!!

About your WS entry, I'm loving it. I always want to live in the house with trees around it.

As always great find for a picture it looks very tranquil.
It reminded me of when I was in third grade and had to make a log cabin.

SabineM said...

Oh I love this weekend snapshot idea. I might join next time!
I want to live in hi cabin! Wouldn't they mind!?!?

Carver said...

Hi Ettey, Thanks for the tag.

Thanks again to all the WS visitors.

Hi SabineM,

You should join in on WS. It's fun and I like the loose structure. I'm with you about living in the cabin. They actually do rent it out as a wedding site which is sort of funny because it's tiny but I guess the idea is to have the wedding in the gardens. Take care, Carver
