Today's Flowers: Medical Planters and NC Botanical Garden
The first two shots are of flowers in the planters at the UNC Cancer Hospital which explains the medical planters being in my title.
The rest of the shots were taken on the same day (this Thursday) at the NC Botanical garden.
I did a very fast walk through while eating lunch at the botanical garden which is across the highway in Chapel Hill, NC from the road which takes me to my doctor's appointments at UNC.
As I've mentioned before on my blog, whenever possible I try to mix fun photo shoots with doctor's appointments to take the edge off.
The shot of the American Beautyberry bush below which focuses on the berries isn't flowers. But I think the berries are as pretty as flowers.
I'm not sure what the bud cluster below is. I suppose since it was growing through the Beautyberry bush it might go with that. Hard to tell since I took a macro shot making it look bigger. However, since that bush has tiny flower clusters, I'd be surprised if the buds look like this. Maybe someone knows.
This has only been a fraction of what's blooming at the NC Botanical garden but I think I'll leave it with one last shot.
